Police: Zero tolerance in school zones as Savannah students return Monday | savannahnow.com

Zero tolerance in school zones means exactly what it sounds like — break any rules, even just a little bit, and you’ll be cited.

It’s a message Savannah-Chatham police officers want to remind the motoring public of as the Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools go back to class Monday morning.

“Most of the school zones have a 25 mile per hour speed limit, some may be a little more,” said police Lt. Greg Mitchell, commander of the department’s traffic unit. “They are marked by yellow flashing lights and (signs) are posted. There will be a zero tolerance enforcement effort for school zones.

Motorists driving only one mile per hour over the speed limit will be given tickets by officers who will be saturating areas around schools, Mitchell said.

That stringent level of enforcement is for one reason only — safety.
