Harrisonburg police are cracking down on traffic violations as the school year begins.
Some people living in neighborhoods woke up to warning tickets on their cars.
Police say they will be targetting people who speed, park on the wrong side of the road, or parking too close to crosswalks..
The focus is more on residential areas as kids are more likely to be walking on them on their way to school.
Some think it's a good idea for drivers to be more cautious this time of year. "I'm sure with kids back from school now, it's going to be even worse, so we need to do something," said Shirley Martin, who lives in Harrisonburg. "Speeding is an issue on several roads. (Route) 33, I think, is a real problem. And, I can tell from experience that we all need to slow down."
Other local residents were glad that police were starting with warnings because a lot of people are just learning about this new emphasis.
