Summer School Speed Zones
I was driving past Quincy Junior High School and realized I was going over the 20 MPH speed limit for a school zone. Then I thought, well school is out so that speed restriction no longer exists, right? Wrong. Ironically, I was heading back to the station and when I got there a news release was sent regarding summer time speed zones for schools. Rather than explain it I thought I would share it with you. Here is the official news release:
We would like to remind the public that the 20 mph school speed zones will remain in effect for three Quincy schools during the summer, from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm, when children are present. They are as follows:
Quincy Junior High June 4th-June 29th
Adams May 29th-June 28th Mon-Thur & Aug. 1st-Aug. 10th
Baldwin May 29th-June 28th Mon-Thur & Aug. 1st-Aug. 10th
Summer School does constitute a school day. Please drive 20 mph when driving through school zones, even if you don’t see children. Many times children are present, but are not seen by motorists because of obstructions such as moving traffic, parked cars, and trees. It is the children that you don’t see that are at risk.
So I guess I got my answer. Hopefully you did too!
