Fayette County school doors open tomorrow, and police say everyone plays a role in back to school safety.
And in preparation for the first day of school, Lexington police are taking extra precautions to insure everyone's safety.
While driving on Lexington roads tomorrow, everyone, including bus drivers, parents, and daily commuters are being asked to allow more time to get to where they are going.
They say drivers violating rules in school zones will be cited.
Lexington police say everything from accidents to speeding tickets increase on this day every year.
"Remind drivers that there's gonna be a lot of extra traffic both pedestrian, bicycle, and bus on the roads. They need to make appropriate plans to leave extra time to get to their destinations," said Commander Thomas Curtsinger, with Lexington Police.
Lexington police say the only different thing they are doing this year is posting up with school officers starting at seven a.m. where schools are under construction.
And they want to remind everyone to be aware and alert of their surroundings, especially buses and children.
Lexington police say their biggest tip is to plan ahead, so you are not rushed on the first big day.
