School starts on Tuesday - Watch for kids walking and biking

Tuesday is the start of school in Fairfax County so motorists need to be especially careful during morning and evening rush hour. We've seen an increase in kids biking to school in Fairfax, and often the most dangerous place to bike is around the school where walkers, bikers, school buses, and parents driving kids to school all converge. See Back to School Safety Reminders from Fairfax County Police.
Fairfax County Police urge motorists to be extra vigilant for pedestrians and bicyclists as county schools resume classes Tuesday, September 2.

Commuters should expect increased congestion throughout the week and build time into their schedules to accommodate for the traditionally heavy time period. Residents may also notice police officers posted in school zones and near bus stops helping ensure pedestrian safety as well as safe loading and unloading of students.
