School starts this Thursday in Bossier City, and its not too early for police to remind everyone that school zone enforcement will once again be in effect.  Bossier City officers will be stationed across the city issuing tickets to motorists who speed in posted school zones.

As a reminder, flashing yellow lights will be activated at various school zones in the city beginning tomorrow through Wednesday.  Citations will not be issued for school zone violations on those days. The lights will be on in school zones as a way to give motorists a reminder that the school zones enforcement begins Thursday.

Motorists have been driving all summer at normal speeds through school zones and the early activation of warning lights is designed to serve as a reminder so  motorists are not caught off guard Thursday morning.

When classes resume Thursday, drivers are urged to leave for work a little earlier so they are not rushed and allow for any delays due to slow school zone traffic.

The minimum fine for speeding in a school zone is $150 plus court costs. Fines can be more expensive and determined by the court depending on how fast someone is clocked speeding in a school zone.  School zone speeding violators are also required to make a mandatory court appearance.
