Sheriff Norton on Back to School Safety

Kids on foot, bikes, or scooters will be out in force in the morning and again in the afternoon as they get back to their educational routine. As school gets back in session, Uintah County Sheriff Vance Norton would like to remind those headed to work in the morning to be mindful of kids walking and riding their bikes to school. Sheriff Norton also urges parents to talk with their kids about using sidewalks and crosswalks where they are available and to discuss bike safety. Sheriff’s deputies will be out actively patrolling and enforcing traffic violations in school zones throughout the county. “We look forward to a safe start to the school year,” shares Sheriff Norton, “and getting in the schools to see the kids.”
