About Speeding in a School Zone Tickets
The charge of speeding in a school zone is considered a serious traffic offense that may trigger a discretionary suspension of your driver's license upon conviction. Unlike other traffic offenses, you cannot receive court supervision for the charge of speeding in a school zone. The public policy behind this severe penalty is to protect the health and safety of school children. Most individuals depend on their ability to drive, and sometimes mistakes do happen.

The speed limit in a school zone is usually 20 mph on school days when children are present. School is usually in session from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Furthermore, the law requires that appropriate signs regarding this special speed limit be posted near where the school zone is located.
Penalties for Speeding in a School Zone Tickets
If you are convicted of a speeding in a school zone ticket, your driver's license may be suspended based on your previous driving record. In addition, you may be fined up to $1,000.00. Furthermore, the presiding judge in your case can also sentence you to a period of probation, public service work, and/or driver safety school. Finally, if you receive a conviction for speeding in a school zone, your insurance carrier may substantially increase your premium payments which can cost you thousands of dollars in the long run.
