School Zones Back in Effect as New School Year Begins

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

School zones are back in effect, so you might want to be extra cautious; especially when it comes to your vehicle's speed. Police will also be keeping an eye out for drivers who are using their cell phones.

Administrators from the Corpus Christi Municipal Court said there is a city ordinance banning the use of cell phones while driving in a school zone, and if you receive a citation, you could receive a fine of up to $327.

Also, always remember to slow down and watch out for kids and other pedestrians in and around school zones.
