Share post:

Chicago, IL – Illinois drivers, take note: Schools in the state are ending their spring break on varying dates this week, leading to staggered increases in traffic.

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, with schools set to reopen on different days starting April 2nd, drivers should remain especially cautious over the coming week. The varied schedules mean that school zones will be active and school buses will be on the roads at different times. Motorists are advised to watch for children, obey school bus signals, and follow speed limits in school zones. 

Defensive driving is key as patterns of pedestrian and vehicular traffic adjust to the new schedules. Commuters should anticipate the need for additional travel time and are encouraged to stay alert to keep the roads safe for all.
