  • As always, do not text or utilize electronic devices that distract you while operating a motor vehicle. .

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will be monitoring traffic and strictly enforcing traffic violations in and around school zones, in areas where children are coming to and from school, and around school buses when loading and unloading.
