School Zone Speed Enforcement

ARCHIVED PRESS RELEASE: Published 5-1-2017

Riverside Division Traffic Unit Officers will be randomly monitoring all active school zones in the Riverside Division throughout the month.  A citation issued for speeding in a school zone requires a court appearance with a fine of up to $500 and/or up to 30 days in jail; NO WARNINGS will be issued.

Schools in the area are preparing to end their sessions and begin summer break, children will be playing in and around schools, crossing streets, walking to and from the areas around schools and are more likely to be distracted and not paying full attention to vehicles in these areas.  Due to the increased foot and vehicle traffic in the area of local schools; drivers are reminded to remain alert, refrain from using all electronic communication devices and heed all warning signs when approaching active school zones.  It is the goal of the Traffic Unit to increase the safety of school children going to and from their schools and to prevent collisions occurring in school zones, especially those involving vehicles and pedestrians.
