The RCMP is reminding drivers to be extra cautious on their commute, starting next week.

Comox Valley RCMP Constable Rob Gardner says the roads will be a lot busier as kids head back to school.

Gardner says it’s a good idea for parents to practice the route to school with their kids and walk with them for the first few days. He says it’s also important that parents ensure they are following the rules of the road, since kids learn by example.
