Wrong Way on the One-Way High School Drive – Violators to be Ticketed
School officials have noticed an increase in motorists driving the wrong way on the short drive from the high school to reach Hwy. 14. Even though it’s a brief drive, it is illegal and classified as "driving the wrong way on a one-way street." Drivers who drive the wrong way on a one-way road or street pose a serious risk to the safety of other motorists and themselves. Wrong-way driving often leads to head-on collisions or near misses.
“Even though it is ‘only a short distance,’ this is nonetheless illegal and dangerous, increasing the chances of a head-on collision,” said a district spokesperson. School officials said that motorists need to proceed in front of the building or behind the building to the proper exit to gain access to Hwy. 14.
For several years, two one-way signs have been posted at the drive from the parking lot to warn motorists they are driving the wrong way. In an attempt to prevent any head-on collisions or other accidents at the high school one-way entry way, Groesbeck City Police will start ticketing drivers pulling on to Hwy. 14 coming the wrong way down the one-way entry way. The school district and the police department will increase their efforts to make motorists aware of the situation to help avert potential collisions. The safety of our students, faculty, and visitors is of utmost importance.
