With Patrick Henry Elementary as a backdrop, Tulsa area safety officials warn people school zones are re-opening and caution drivers to slow down and pay attention. Mark Madeja is with Triple-A in Tulsa. He says school zones will be active and buses with students will be on the roads. Madeja says collisions involving pedestrians occur too often across the U-S, and prevention is key to reducing the numbers. He was joined at a School Zone Safety news conference by the Tulsa Police, Highway Patrol, and Tulsa Sheriff’s Office. Tulsa and most area public schools are back in session beginning next week.
