SCHOOL SPEED LIMITS TO RESUME AUGUST 12

Area schools resume classes on August 12th, and the enforcement of the reduced speed school zones in Salina will resume on the same date.  Drivers are encouraged to be additionally aware of children, school buses, the school zones around schools, and the reduced speed limits.

Kansas law states that when a school bus stop arm is extended and the flashing lights on the bus have been activated, vehicles traveling in both directions must come to a complete stop.  Kansas law also states that vehicles must stop and yield to pedestrians in marked crosswalks.

The flashing speed limit sign beacons will be activated on Tuesday, August 5th, one week in advance of the first day of school on Tuesday, August 12th.  Motorists are encouraged to practice extra caution when traveling in the reduced-speed school zone sign locations.
