)-- 33rd Street Bail Bonds in Orlando, Florida encourage drivers to be aware when driving as students in Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake and Volusia counties will be heading back to school soon. Russ Pacala, owner of 33rd Street Bail Bonds stated, “Drivers need to pay attention when driving near school zones. In the next few weeks, drivers need to be prepared for the new school year by looking for the school zones that they pass on their daily routes to work. Distracted driving in these areas can have serious consequences and heavy fines and ticketing.”
The speed limit in Florida school zones can be up to 20 mph. According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, special speed limit signs are posted around schools to alert drivers as they enter the zone. These signs have flashing lights that tell drivers when the lower speed limit is in effect. Kids will be crossing the street on foot and on their bicycles. There will be extra heavy traffic of parents picking up their kids.
Additionally, there will be school buses entering and exiting the school. 33rd Street Bail Bond encourages drivers to pay special attention when school buses are present. When a school bus stops and its red lights are flashing drivers must stop. Drivers should never pass a school bus that is loading or unloading children. Passing a stopped school bus is very dangerous and can carry a 4-point infraction. Be aware that fines are doubled for speeding in a construction or school zones. There is a minimum fine of $165 and if drivers pass on the side where children enter and exit the school bus, they could receive a minimum fine of $265. If injury occurs drivers can be required to do community service, have their license suspended and incur a $1,500 fine. Know the laws about stopping for school buses. All drivers moving in either direction on a two-way street must stop for a school bus displaying a stop signal and must remain stopped until the road is clear of children and the school bus stop arm is withdrawn. On a highway divided by a paved median, all drivers moving in either direction must stop for a school bus displaying a stop signal and must remain stopped until the road is clear of children and the school bus stop arm is withdrawn.
The staff 33rd Street Bail Bonds hopes drivers will be attentive behind the wheel to students heading back to school. Pacala added, “The month of August will already be busy on the roadways with all of the road construction underway in the greater Orlando area. Adding school buses and parents driving their kids to and from school requires drivers to have extra patience and a bit of caution to keep everybody safe. Kids walking or riding their bikes to and from school require drivers to be extra cautious as kids can be unpredictable.”
