Authorities remind drivers of school zones

Local authorities are reminding drivers that school is back in full swing in Crittenden and Livingston counties.

Marion Police Department and Livingston County Sheriff's Department want to remind motorists to exercise extreme caution when traveling through local school zones.

"There is a great deal of congested traffic in these zones for probably thirty minutes, two times a day," said Livingston County Sheriff Bobby Davidson. "We urge drivers to slow down and pay attention."

School zones in Marion and across Livingston County are clearly marked, and the speed limits are strictly enforced in the zones.

"Taking a few extra minutes to get to your destination could save a life," Davidson said.
