Do People Slow Down For School Zones at the Jersey Shore?
Have you ever driven through a school zone and looked down to see your speed? Have you found yourself needing to slow down? Do you think people respect the school zone speeds?
I think these days drivers are not sure if schools are open or closed, so they don’t notice ”school zones” as often as they used to. Not that this is an excuse, but yes schools are running different schedules. Some open, some closed and some doing a hybrid schedule.
School zones are there for a reason and we should try and remember these rules even if we think a school is possibly closed, play it responsibly and just slow down.
According to google....The speed limit in NJ, unless otherwise posted, is 25 mph when passing through a school zone (N.J.S.A. 39:4-98). So slow down and keep your attention on our school zones, hopefully by next school year we will have a ”normal” schedule.
