COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

As a few schools head back tomorrow, police officials remind you of a few traffic safety regulations. 

Police in the area say if you are violating traffic laws in school zones there will not be any chance for warnings. 

Sgt. Chris Anderson from the Columbus Police Department says, "In school zones, Georgia law does not require us to give you any grace."

Also, keep in mind when you see a school bus with the stop sign out and lights flashing, you are required by law to stop until the lights go off and the sign is back in. 

It is encouraged that everyone drives safely as some schools head back for the new school year. 

We want to see those first day of school pictures so send in your pictures to pix@wtvm.com and you might see your picture on air and online.
