ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. (WXYZ) — Some parents say driving near Rochester Adams High School has been stressful – and risky.

The district said it is addressing the issue.

Brand new speed limit signs have been installed outside of the school, with extra neon yellow signs telling drivers about the school zone and lowered speed limit.

However, some parents tell 7 Action News that the signs don't go far enough.

One mother says more needs to be done to keep everyone safe.

"The first day of school, there was a head-on collision where a parent was taken to the hospital," she said.

The district says they will add another sign, reminding drivers to keep the line moving. A street light will be installed to brighten the student drop-off area in the morning.

The school district also plans to hire a company for a traffic study to determine if a traffic light needs to be installed.
