Heads-up for the First Day of School

DPD Encourages Motorists to Drive Safely Around Schools and be Mindful of Increase in Young Pedestrians

SchoolCrossing

On Monday, August 22, 2016, students throughout Denver will be returning to classes as Denver Public Schools begin a new academic year. And Denver Police want to remind commuters to drive safely as the new school year also brings with it an increase in pedestrian traffic – including small children – around bus stops, schools and their surrounding neighborhoods.

The Denver Police Department will be increasing enforcement in these areas to help ensure safety and remind commuters to slow down and obey all traffic laws in school zones.

Tips for Drivers:
1. Slow down and obey all traffic laws and speed limits.
2. Stop for school busses that are loading or unloading children.
3. Watch for and obey signals from school crossing guards.
4. Be alert and watch for children near schools, bus stops and in school parking lots.
5. Watch for school zone signals and obey the reduced speed limit.
6. Do not pass other vehicles in school zones or at crosswalks as stopped vehicles may be allowing children to cross the road.
7. Do not change lanes in school zones.
8. Do not make U-Turns in school zones.
9. Do not text or otherwise use a cell phone unless it is completely hands-free.
10. Unless licensed to do so, do not use handicap or emergency vehicle lanes or spaces to drop off or pick up children at school.

Tips for Students/Families:
1. Parents of younger students who ride a school bus should consider escorting their children to and from their bus stop.
2. Children should not stand or play in the roadway while waiting for or exiting a school bus.
3. Students who ride the bus should follow all safety rules and avoid distracting the driver.
4. Students who walk should do so in a group, when possible, and follow pedestrian laws.
5. Cross streets only at crosswalks and follow the directions given by school crossing guards.
6. Students who ride a bike should wear a helmet and follow all safety rules for bicyclists.
7. Walk – don’t ride – a bicycle across streets and only in designated crosswalks.
8. Students who drive to school should avoid speeding and minimize distractions from cell phone usage, eating, loud music or disruptive passengers.
9. Never overload a vehicle. Remember that every passenger must use a safety belt, or if required, a child safety seat.
10. Always act as a good role model for younger siblings and fellow students.

Parking Restrictions Around Stadium for Broncos Preseason

PARKING ADVISORY FROM DENVER PUBLIC WORKS

stadium parking

On Saturday, August 20, the Denver Broncos will tackle their first preseason game at home, and Denver Public Works is reminding drivers to have a game plan for parking. Be mindful and keep an eye on posted parking restrictions around the stadium, including surrounding neighborhoods. If you are attending, please follow posted neighborhood parking restrictions.

On Street Parking
Denver Public Works Right of Way Enforcement Agents will enforce posted parking regulations in the area including surrounding neighborhoods during stadium events.

Posted signs in the stadium area restrict parking to vehicles with the correct residential parking permit posted in the window from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on Saturday. Those vehicles that park without appropriate permits will be cited and towed to a temporary impound lot in Denver at 2000 W. 3rd Avenue.

If you are eligible for a Residential Parking Permit (RPP), now is a great time to make sure your permits are current. You are likely eligible for RPP if you have a sign with posted restrictions on your street. To find out more, call 311 or visit denvergov.org/rpp.

Stadium Parking
There will be handicap placard enforcement for all handicap parking lots on-site at the stadium. Anyone who would like to park in these lots will be asked to show proof of their handicap placard registration before they will be allowed to enter.

Off-Street Parking (parking lots)
Drivers should also be cautious when utilizing a parking lot in the area.

If you are not parking in one of the parking lots on stadium property, choose only those locations that 1) display a special event parking sign issued by the City & County of Denver, or 2) are existing approved parking lots clearly managed by reputable companies.

The signs display the seal of the City & County of Denver and include the address of the parking location. These signs were issued because of the proliferation of illegal parking lots taking drivers’ money, only to have the drivers return to their vehicles to find it ticketed and/or towed.
When parking in a lot with the City & County of Denver sign posted, drivers can be assured that they will be parked legally and are not in danger of tickets, tows or being “parked in” (blocked or trapped in a space by other vehicles).

Alternative Transportation
Denver Public Works also encourages people to use public transportation to get to the game. The stadium is easily accessible by light rail or bus. Please check with RTD on schedules prior to planning your trip. Go to rtd-denver.com or call the RTD Telephone Information Center at 303-299-6000.

The stadium is also conveniently located adjacent to Denver bike paths, and it is equipped with over three hundred individual bike racks. Check out denvergov.org/bikemap to plan your route or pick up a free copy of the 2016 Denver Bike Map at your local recreation center or Denver City Council office.
