Shepparton police are warning drivers not to be complacent in school zones, with 10 people detected speeding outside a primary school in an hour yesterday morning
Shepparton police Constable John Brunskill said police would be focusing on school zones in the coming weeks to remind drivers of the importance of safety around schools.
‘‘We’ll be targeting all traffic offences, including the use of mobile phones, seatbelts and speeding,’’ Const Brunskill said.
‘‘We’ve been back to school for three to four weeks now and people are starting to slip into their old habits again and we’ve seen a lot of traffic offences. We sat here (at Gowrie St Primary School) and there were 10 speeding offences in an hour.
‘‘A lot of people are doing the right thing, but there’s some people that get in their car and just don’t think about it. We want to focus on the safety of kids going to and from school.’’
