School is back in session and the Lombard Police Department want to remind residents about the laws regarding school zone speed limits, texting, and passing school buses.
To help keep our kids safe when getting to school, please remember to follow these simple safety rules:
• School zone speeding or failure to yield to children in a crosswalk: a first violation is a petty offense with a minimum fine of $150, a second or subsequent violation will result in a fine of $300.
• Using a cell phone (unless hands free) or texting in a school zone: $120 fine unless the violator is involved in a traffic crash that causes great bodily harm (Class A Misdemeanor) or death (Class 4 Felony).
• Passing a school bus: first offense will earn drivers a fine of $150 and a 3 month driver’s license suspension, and a second offense will result in a minimum $500 fine and a 1 year driver’s license suspension. (See Picture)
