LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Tuesday is the first day of school for the Lafayette School Corporation. That means drivers need to slow down in school zones.
Outside Miller Elementary School parents were walking their kids down Fourth Street while crossing guards were busy making sure they arrived safely.
Lafayette police were outside all LSC schools making sure cars are slowing down to the posted 20 mph speed limit. Officer Jeff Rooze said everything is going smoothly.
“I think everybody is a little bit anxious,” Rooze said. “But with the publicity of the first day of school, everybody is taking it real easy. Speed has been under. I’ve been sitting here for a while and everybody is in compliance.”
In Lafayette, school zone hours are from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and again from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Drivers are expected to slow down to 20 mph in those zones.
