BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Watch your speed! It’s been just a week since kids and teachers returned to school and it seems that motorists throughout Boca Raton couldn’t care less.
The Boca Raton Police Department which, as most of our readers realize, patrols the City of Boca Raton, issued a whopping 310 tickets and warnings during the first week of school.
These tickets and warnings — issued by the motorcycle unit — include speeding, improper passing, bicycle helmet warnings, seat belt, passing a stopped school bus, violation of a leaner’s permit, registration and insurance.
Of these citations and warnings, 84 were issued IN school zones.
We don’t yet have statistics from Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office although their motorcycle officers have been out and about as well. We expect their numbers to also be notable.
On behalf of all BocaNewsNow.com readers with kids: take those yellow lights seriously and put down the damn phone.
(We will find your Facebook wall post or tweet about being stopped in a school zone. And we’ll publish it. That’s how we roll).
