Have you gotten a speeding ticket in a Las Vegas school zone yet? If not, you’re certainly not out of the woods yet – school just started yesterday in most Clark County schools. The lights are now on and flashing. The signs that say “when children present” should be heeded as children are now present. Signs that say no U turn, crosswalks, all these things are now going to be getting extra scrutiny by the police because kids are back, and not paying the best of attention in their excitement or agony (or both) at being back in school. Also, don’t, just don’t, pass a school bus that has its “stop” sign out and lights flashing. Drivers of school buses can report you. Many do, as they are charged with the safety of the children on their buses and routes.
But what should you do if you haven’t had the chance to read the above advice, and didn’t follow it?
