CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Clarksville Police Department will increase patrols in the morning and afternoon hours with the start of school Wed, Aug. 7.

Officers will be ensuring that school zone speed limits are obeyed and also that motorists remember to stop for school buses that are loading and unloading. Motorists must stop for school bus stop signs regardless of the size of the highway, unless there is a physical barrier dividing the road, such as Martin Luther King Parkway (76 Connector). Motorists must stop on highways such as Madison St., Riverside Dr., Fort Campbell Blvd., and Wilma Rudolph Blvd. Size of the highway is not a factor.

Many students will be walking to school and motorists need to slow down when they see children on the sidewalks to ensure they can stop if needed.
