SAPD: Remain Alert for School Zones

 

SAN ANGELO, TX — As schools reopen this week, SAPD would like to remind San Angelo drivers to be mindful when they drive in school zones.

  • Remain alert at all times.
  • Put your cellphone away —cellphone use is banned in active school zones and violators face fines of up to $200 in school zones where signs are posted.
  • Always obey school zone speed limit signs — traffic fines usually double in school zones.
  • Drop off and pick up children in the school’s designated areas, not the middle of the street.
  • Keep an eye on children gathered at bus stops.
  • Be alert for children who might dart across the street or between vehicles on their way to school.
  • Obey all traffic rules, signs, and signals.
  • Stay away from alcohol and/or drugs, including prescribed and over-the-counter medication which may impair driving. They impact your ability to remain alert and affect your decision-making, reflexes and reaction time
