School Zones enforced from Friday 28 January 2011
The Roads and Traffic Authority is reminding motorists 40 km/h school zones will be enforced from Friday 28 January 2011 for the start of term one.
Drivers are urged to take care and slow down in and around school zones.
Friday 28 January is the first gazetted school day for term one and motorists must adhere to the 40km/h speed zones around schools.
School zones operate on all gazetted school days including staff and teacher development days.
The majority of school zones operate between 8am – 9.30am and 2.30pm-4pm on gazetted school days.
The safety of children travelling to, from and around school is of critical importance to the Roads and Traffic Authority and school zones are in place on all roads with a direct access point to a school.
