Traffic Ticket Lawyers – School Zones
Police will be watching school zones for speeders as local schools reopen this month. The police department wants to remind motorists that speeds in school zones are 20 miles per hour unless otherwise posted. Drivers should be attentive to pedestrians in crosswalks in and around the local schools. Pedestrians should cross at designated intersections and crosswalks when they have the right of way. Police officers will be posted near school zones to monitor the speeds of vehicles, along with improper lane changes, tailgating, or other safety issues. School patrols will be done with regular shift officers and extra manpower through the Selective Traffic Enforcement Patrol program, which hires additional officers.
August will also be one of the months for allocating state grant money to pay for traffic enforcement. We ask motorists to be vigilant in school zones and areas where students will be walking to and from school. There’s going to be a lot of kids out there. Extra patrols will be made around schools when they are in session. In addition to speeding violations, police will be watching for drivers who ignore school bus stop-arm warnings and pedestrian crossing issues. Most school traffic violations will result in tickets, and some carry heavy fines or possible license suspension.
