School Zone Tickets Start with School Starting Soon

School starts next week, and you have to be careful. You have to be careful for any number of reasons. You have to be careful beyond the obvious reason of kids on the roadways. Remember that it’s the beginning of school. That means there is likely to be a lot of excitement. There is also going to be a whole lot of uncertainty as children dart back and forth. They’ll grab things that they forget. They will realize they’ve gone to the wrong entrance. Skateboards will catch on unfamiliar seems in the concrete at new schools. Bicycles will weave back and forth, looking for unfamiliar bike racks and going through unfamiliar roadways.

Through all this, you can expect Metro Police to be monitoring everything from speed to crosswalks to lights, traffic crossing guards, you name it. Remember that school zone tickets are very, very expensive to just pay off or to try to fight on your own.

In the meantime, check out this useful set of school zone traffic tips for Las Vegas drivers from the National Safety Council:

“If You’re Dropping Off

Schools often have very specific drop-off procedures for the school year. Make sure you know them for the safety of all kids. More children are hit by cars near schools than at any other location, according to the National Safe Routes to School program. The following apply to all school zones:

  • Don’t double park; it blocks visibility for other children and vehicles
  • Don’t load or unload children across the street from the school
  • Carpool to reduce the number of vehicles at the school

Sharing the Road with Young Pedestrians

According to research by the National Safety Council, most of the children who lose their lives in bus-related incidents are 4 to 7 years old, and they’re walking. They are hit by the bus, or by a motorist illegally passing a stopped bus. A few precautions go a long way toward keeping children safe:

  • Don’t block the crosswalk when stopped at a red light or waiting to make a turn, forcing pedestrians to go around you; this could put them in the path of moving traffic
  • In a school zone when flashers are blinking, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk or intersection
  • Always stop for a school patrol officer or crossing guard holding up a stop sign
  • Take extra care to look out for children in school zones, near playgrounds and parks, and in all residential areas
  • Don’t honk or rev your engine to scare a pedestrian, even if you have the right of way
  • Never pass a vehicle stopped for pedestrians
  • Always use extreme caution to avoid striking pedestrians wherever they may be, no matter who has the right of way”
