School starts, expect traffic delays
Submitted By Lt. Henry Kwong, Milpitas PD
The Milpitas Police Department would like to remind residents that school will be
back in session on Monday, August 20, 2012. The first week of school brings changes to the daily schedules of many people. This will undoubtedly affect the morning and afternoon traffic flow as people acclimate themselves back into their routines.
In order to minimize traffic impacts, we would like to offer some simple suggestions:
* Utilize public transportation.
* Carpool as much as possible.
* Walk or bike to school with classmates.
* Plan for additional travel time.
* For those going to Milpitas High School, consider using safe, alternate drop-off & pick-up locations, including the loading zone on Jacklin Road and the loading zone on Arizona Avenue, in order to avoid the traffic in front of Milpitas High School.
