School is back in session and the Kennewick Police Department are reminding drivers about school zone safety.

Do you realize that there are more than 25 specific school zones in the City of Kennewick?

Kennewick Police are reminding drivers to drive appropriately when passing schools.

The speed limit is 20 mph and that limit is strictly enforced. There are multiple patrols and officers monitoring school zones in the morning and in the afternoon.

Here is a little information provided by KPD that explains school zones.

When are the school zones 20 mph? Most school zones are equipped with flashing yellow lights, to warn drivers of a school zone. If the zone is not equipped with lights, the 20 mph speed limit sign will say “when children present”.

School zones are particularly busy and congested — all the more reason to be patient and cautious and most of all safe.
