Town Of Moraga

Back to School Safety

With Moraga schools back in session, the Moraga Police Department (MPD) asks all drivers to respect the 25 MPH speed limit in school zones, remember to stop for school buses when their red lights and stop signs are activated, and pay close attention to vehicular traffic and pedestrians in the areas around schools. Parents and children walking to school should be extra cautious. Please remember you are required to walk facing oncoming traffic if you must walk in the roadway, and never step into the roadway from between parked cars until it is absolutely clear. If you have to walk with a child in the roadway, please make sure the child is walking closest to the curb and is firmly in your grasp. If everyone pays attention and is aware of their responsibilities, the overall safety in our Town will be greatly enhanced.
