KAMLOOPS – If you can’t police yourself to stop speeding in school zones, the Kamloops RCMP will hand you a hefty fine.
“We’ve received numerous complaints of drivers speeding in school zones,” spokesperson Cpl. Cheryl Bush says.
The three roads police indicated as “high offender areas” are Parkcrest Avenue, Tranquille Road and Summit Drive.
Bush says the traffic unit will conduct more speed watch patrols in the area.
“As we get into spring weather there will be more children walking or biking to school,” she says.
School zone speed limits are in effect from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. The fine for speeding in a school zone starts at $196, Bush says.
