AUSTIN, Texas (KXAN) — As students head back to class AISD officials want drivers to keep students’ safety in mind in school zones.

AISD Police Chief Eric Mendez joined us at Bryker Woods Elementary School to discuss his message to drivers entering school zones. Mendez said police are monitoring student drop-offs and pick-ups to ensure that drivers are following the school zone laws.
