School is back and with it 40 zones

40 zones

JOY Burch is reminding motorists that 40km/h school zones are back in force with the start of Term 4 of the school year.

“Children are our most vulnerable road users; they are not as aware as adults of the dangers associated with crossing the road,” Joy said.

“The school zone speed limits ensure motorists have extra time to stop in an unexpected situation.

“I encourage all drivers to take extra care around school zones and remember the 40km/h limit between 8am and 4pm.

“Drivers who choose to ignore the speed limits face tough penalties, ranging from a fine of $236 and the loss of one demerit point to $1,821 and the loss of six demerit points.”
