Taylorville schools are set to start in less than 10 days, and that doesn't mean that only students, parents, and teachers need be ready, but the Taylorville Police Department needs to be prepared for school safety measures especially around high traffic areas. Once schools start back, times in the morning and afternoon will be much more congested because of school pickups and drop offs. Sargent Alan Mills from the Taylorville Police Department is asking parents to be more prepared and aware during these times because of the congestion especially during pickup times.
Mills also mentioned high school drivers and for parents to reinforce the driving rules for their children to be cautious when leaving school because accidents can happen when you least expect it.
