Don't Forget - School Resumes Monday
Did You Know:
27,634 speeding infringements were issued in school zones in 2016.
24,707 speeding infringements were issued in school zones in 2015.
The standard times that most school zones apply in Queensland are 7–9am and 2–4pm.

Motorists urged to slow down as students go back to school across the state from tomorrow. Police Minister Mark Ryan said school zones would be fully operational from Monday morning with speed limits reduced during marked drop-off and pick-up times.
“With hundreds of thousands of students starting or returning to school tomorrow, we are urging all motorists to take extra care, slow down and be on the lookout for pedestrians near schools,” Minister Ryan said. "Queensland motorists should expect police to be out in force in school zones from tomorrow and throughout this week targeting drivers and riders putting others at risk near schools,” he said.

Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Mike Keating said "Reduced speed limits are integral to road safety in school zones where children are vulnerable due to their unpredictability and the difficulty for motorists to see small children."

The most common school zone speed limit is 40km/h.
