School Zone Enforcement Wave
Thursday, August 14, 2008

Motor Officer

Titusville, FL—Titusville Police started an aggressive enforcement initiative for the start of the school year. We are concerned about the safety of children in school zones and are committed to promoting an early awareness to our community that school has started –slow down! Although clearly marked with signs, flashing lights and/or fluorescent green traffic cones, some motorists fail to recognize the specially marked school zones and continue at unsafe speeds.


We believe a strong presence of law enforcement in our school zones will help bring awareness to the reduced speed zones of 15 MPH. Motorcycle officers, as well as crime suppression officers in both marked and unmarked cars, will be assigned to school zones throughout the City every day for the first 2 weeks of the school year. Although warnings may be issued in some cases in the first few days to help bring awareness to drivers, citations will result after the first week as we initiate zero tolerance for the remainder of the school year.


EXAMPLE: A driver stopped for going 30 MPH in a posted school zone of

15 MPH faces a fine of up to $334.00!


After the initial two-week wave of daily enforcement, officers will be conducting periodic details at each school zone throughout the school year to check for compliance.


We urge drivers to be extra patient for the first couple of weeks. Traffic will be slower and heavier around our schools.


Police will also be enforcing the State Bicycle Helmet Law which requires any rider under the age of 16 to be wearing a bike helmet.
