School Zones are sections of roads or streets where a speed of 20 mph applies as posted at the bottom of the school speed sign. A school zone starts at a SCHOOL SPEED sign and ends at the END SCHOOL ZONE sign or other posted speed sign that increases the speed.
There are three school zone speed signs: 1) Speed effective when sign light is flashing; 2) Speed effective only on school days and between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:00 pm; 3) Speed effective when childern are present.
Always be aware and on the lookout for childern around schools even when school is not in session. Schools are popular play areas and with so many sport activities there are children and adults around them often.
