BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — School starts Monday in Palm Beach County which means a return of flashing yellow lights and the police who are often ready to write tickets to drivers who think the rules don't apply to them.

A reminder: speeding in a school zone automatically doubles whatever fine you would normally receive for speeding.

As a public service, here's what you can expect to pay based on how fast you're driving in a school zone when you get stopped. Also expect 3 or 4 points on your license:

1-9 mph over the limit: $156.00

10-14 mph over the limit: $306.00

15-19 mph over the limit: $406.00

20-29 mph over the limit: $456.00

30+ mph over the limit: $610.00

Passing a school bus while its loading or unloading kids is also a 4-point offense and very expensive.
