NOTICE: School Safety Zone Enforcement

Download the Signed School Zone Safety letter  to see fines and other traffic violations police will be enforcing.

Ensuring the safety of all students is a paramount objective of both the Dearborn Public Schools and the Dearborn Police Department. An area of common complaints and concern is traffic related issues in school zones during student drop off and pick up. Motorists often create unsafe conditions for students by blocking roadways, speeding, and improper parking. As in previous years, the Dearborn Police Department will be conducting directed traffic enforcement in the school zones.  Please be careful and obey all traffic laws.  This includes double parking, blocking driveways, failure to completely stop at a stop sign, failure to yield to a bus or pedestrians, disobey a school crossing guard, and other traffic infractions.

Please keep in mind:

  • The bus stop is for buses only
  • Walk children to school when possible
  • Drop off/pick up children a short distance away from school when possible.  This alleviates traffic congestion around our schools
  • Once your child is out of the car and safely on the sidewalk vacate the area to make room for other parents to drop off their children.
  • Be mindful of school staff and crossing guards.  They are there for your child’s safety.
  • Be a “Good Neighbor” by being mindful of residents who live near school zones.
