RPD enforces school-zone laws

August 19, 2011 • Local News

The Roswell Police Department announced that officers will enforce [auth] traffic laws inside a school zone with zero tolerance.

RPD spokesman Officer Travis Holley said, “You will get a ticket.”

He said that now that school is back in session, drivers need to adhere to traffic laws in Roswell school zones. “Any traffic violation in a school zone, regardless of how minor will result in a citation.”

The fines for speeding in a school zone start at $59 with a $4 enhancement for every mile per hour over the posted limit.

He wanted to remind drivers that they also need to stop for school buses when the lights are flashing, which indicates they are loading or unloading.

Traffic laws also make it illegal to pass or overtake another moving vehicle in a school zone.

Holley asked people to report any and all suspicious person(s) or activities in and around our schools. “If something, or someone, doesn’t seem right, then it’s probably not.

The non-emergency number for the RPD is 624-6770.
