Watch Out for School Zones

Lubbock ISD students return to school Monday morning, but part of the challenge will be just getting there.

Representatives from Lubbock's Halt Aggressive Driving, the Traffic Commission and City Council gathered today to urge drivers to use caution on the roads.

And whether they're walking or riding, children need to practice safety rules as well.

Karin Slay, Executive Director of the Injury Prevention Coalition, "They need to spend the weekend going over the safest route, the route that utilizes crosswalks, not the middle of the block and follow those rules they've been taught."

There are 44 school zones in Lubbock ranging from 20 to 30 miles per hour. If you get caught speeding you will be fined. For instance, a fine for someone going 10 mph over the posted speed limit when school zone lights are flashing is $177. But for someone going 15mph over - the fine is $212.
