School Bus Safety Video

Gwinnett County Police Department School Bus Traffic Law Safety Video

The following video was created by the Gwinnett County Police Department in conjunction with Gwinnett County Communications.  The objective of the video is to educate the motoring public on the state law regarding when to stop for a school bus loading and unloading children.

To a parent, there is nothing more important than our children.  To keep our children as safe as possible, it is important that the public understand the laws in place to keep them safe when getting on and off the bus. 

As the new school year approaches, expect to see Gwinnett County Police officers enforcing OCGA 40-6-163.

FOG (Fats, Oils & Grease) Prevention Program

What do bacon, ice cream, and peanut butter all have in common? They are more than just tasty treats. They are also sources of fats, oil, and grease, also known as FOG. While fats, oil, and grease add extra flavor to your food, pouring FOG down the drain can leave a real mess in Gwinnett County’s sewer collection system.

FOG creates clogs that can back up sewage into your street, yard, or home and can even send it spilling into a neighborhood stream! Think of it this way––if it can clog arteries in the body, then it will probably clog the sewer pipe. Fortunately, clearing up FOG is as easy as doing a few simple things around the kitchen.
