Back to School Driving Safety

Desert Sands Unified School District will be starting their school year on Thursday, August 25, 2016. Motorists are reminded to use additional caution when driving in or near school zones within the City of Indio. The Indio Police Department (IPD) will be starting the school year with maximum traffic enforcement and awareness efforts within city school zones. IPD wants to ensure the safety of the students as they travel to and from school.

The new school year always brings traffic congestion in the school zones and surrounding areas.
