Following numerous complaints regarding unsafe driving, the Clarkson Police Department is increasing traffic law enforcement in the City of Clarkson.

In a notice posted on the Clarkson Police Facebook page, the agency states that, during the morning and afternoon school traffic, caution lights will be flashing to mark school zones on Millerstown Street and Elizabethtown Road in Clarkson.

While the lights are flashing, the speed limit will be 25 mph inside the posted school zones.

The Clarkson Police Department asks drivers to pay attention to the road while driving and obey all speed signs, as the agency will be enforcing speed and other traffic laws throughout the city.

“With the increase in accidents and complaints of speeding, the Clarkson Police will step up unsafe driving enforcement,” said Clarkson Police Chief Buck Meredith. “The Clarkson Police ask that everyone please obey the posted speed limits and to focus on driving while traveling on city streets and all roadways throughout Grayson County.”

The Clarkson Police Department also reminds drivers not to text and drive.
