Drivers are reminded to observe school zones

It’s back to school for many school districts across the city this week, so drivers are reminded to slow down when driving near school zones.

School zones are in effect from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 2 to 5 p.m. The afternoon speed zone was extended an additional hour as many middle and high school students are staying late for campus activities.

Using a cell phone in a school zone is also prohibited. Drivers can face up to a $200 fine.
