School zone speeds in effect

KGMI News Reporting

BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Local police will be strictly enforcing school zone and school bus violations now that kids are back in school.

If a school bus is stopped on the street, drivers in both directions have to stop or face a $394 ticket.

The speed limit goes down to 20 miles-per-hour around any designated school crosswalk, even if the crosswalk doesn’t have a lighted sign.

Drivers who don’t slowdown in school zones could get a ticket over $400.
