Police: Watch Out For Active School Zones

Posted: Updated:

As kids head back to school, local police are sending out an important message to drivers.

With the start of the new school year, police are going to be monitoring school zones.
They want to remind drivers to be aware of extra traffic around schools.
And, know there's a 15 mile per hour speed limit in all school zones.
Trooper Robert Brown, with the Pennsylvania State Police, says kids are excited so you should be extra alert this time of year.
He also suggests to give yourself some extra time, getting to your destination.

"There's going to be a lot of kids out there, excited to get back to school, may not be paying attention to the traffic, the cars going by, what's going on. They're seeing their new friends and stuff, or old friends. Remember,  school busses are out there, they got the amber and red lights flashing. School zones, slow it down, be a little more cognizant to make sure we're watching for the kids instead of the kids having to watch for us." Said Trooper Brown.

Trooper Brown says the fines for speeding through a school zone are usually pretty hefty, even more so for passing a school bus its with lights flashing.
And he adds drivers caught doing those types of things could also be looking about possible license suspension.
