With local schools resuming on Wednesday, it is a timely reminder to be cautious when driving in school zones.
All zones have a 40km/h speed limit, which must be obeyed during the peak hours of 8am to 9.30am and 2.30pm to 4pm.
Deniliquin highway patrol supervisor Sergeant Darryl Thomas (pictured) said drivers need to be vigilant around the 40km/h school zones.
‘‘Police will be patrolling the school areas and carrying out stationary speed enforcement,’’ he said.
‘‘Drivers should also be aware that some zones have slightly different time restrictions.’’
Penalties for those caught driving above the speed limit are $177 and two demerit points for 10km and under; $319 and four demerit points for 10km plus and a maximum fine of $2341 and seven points for more than 45km above the limit.
NSW Roads and Maritime Services also advises children to be aware of traffic around their school, with the ‘stop, look, listen and think’ method.
