NEW CANAAN - New Canaan police have started a six-week safety crackdown around the town's schools.
Police say they are focusing on slowing down drivers around the town's five schools. The extra patrols are being paid for by a state grant.
Police say they are focusing on speeders, drivers talking on phones and people who pass stopped school buses.
In the hour and a half News 12 Connecticut rode along with patrol officers outside East Elementary School this morning, police pulled over several drivers for speeding.
If drivers get pulled over in a school zone, they can expect to pay as much as $255.
The extra patrols will be in place until the end of May.
