GRAPEVINE (1080 KRLD) - With school back in session, drivers all over Texas have to make changes to their driving twice a day. It may take a while to get used to the rules of the road after a three month vacation.

School zones are back, and the police are back watching for people that are going too fast or passing school buses or using their smartphones. 

The Grapevine Police Department put together a Facebook video to show some of the excuses that traffic officers hear from drivers as they forget the rules of the road, like the guy who washed his car to make sure that it didn't spot from the leftover droplets. 

The Grapevine PD's Amanda McNew says they hear it all, such as the man who sped through a school zone with a bag of french fries. He wanted to cool them off. 

Grapevine has so much material, it's putting out another Facebook video with more excuses today.
