BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Today is the first day of school for students in Palm Beach County. As students and school busses hit the road, so too are Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputies — and other law enforcement — prepared to vigilantly monitor speed in school zone.
Speed patrols will be on duty between 7am and 9am and 1pm and 3pm outside elementary and middle schools throughout the area, and they will not hesitate to cite you if you are speeding. It is not uncommon to see several cars pulled over at once.
Fines range from $156 to $606.
Tickets will also be issued for bicyclists not wearing helmets, parents who park illegally near school grounds or on school property.
