Mason Co. Sheriff Reminds Drivers To Slow Down Around Schools

Posted: Updated:

A proactive Mason County mom took to Facebook to ask other drivers to be more careful on the slick roads, and the sheriff took notice.

The Scottville mom says people aren't driving cautiously enough, especially in areas where children are walking to school.

Sheriff Kim Cole agrees, shared her post, and is asking drivers to remember to slow down in the winter, especially around schools.

 He says some snow banks are as tall as the children walking to school, so they can be hard to see.

 The sheriff says he's glad this mom spoke up before something worse happened.

The sheriff is also reminding people to keep their sidewalks cleared and maintained, going along with city ordinances.
