Drivers reminded: Slow down in school zones

Most schools in the Portland metro area get back in session on Tuesday. That means drivers need to pay closer attention to the school zone speed limits.

The maximum speed limit in posted, active school zones is 20 mph. In addition, you need to stop for all school buses with flashing red lights. You are required by law to remain stopped until the flashing red lights are off and children are out of the way.

Kids are energetic and often dart back and forth between sidewalks. Drivers are reminded to pay extra attention in school zones.
