But, Emory cautions, traffic is definitely going to be worse than it was in the summer months.
“The big three (I-75, I-85 and GA 400) from the north side will start to fill up. As will I-75 on the south side,” Emory said.
More importantly Captain Herb thinks now is an important time to remind drivers about school bus safety.
“When the stop sign on the school bus comes out, traffic in both directions must stop. Unless there is a divided median between the two sides of the road. If there is no median everyone must stop,” Emory said.
Emory also reminds commuters to slow down in school zones as instructed.
“Always expect the unexpected when it comes to kids.”
Commuters can expect another bump in traffic next week. Cobb and Fulton County schools are back in session on August 15th which will certainly cause increased delays on I-75 and GA 400.
