Okotoks RCMP will be extra vigilant of school zones this week.

With all schools back in session, they're reminding local motorists to slow to 30 km/h in school and playground zones, which are in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

In the latest Mountie Minutes release from the Okotoks detachment, they say they'll be conducting speed enforcement in school and playground zones all week.

They're also reminding drivers to be patient with kids, as some students might still be learning the rules of the road and how to cross safely.
