Back to School Reminder for Motorists

Source: Lithgow City Council
Archived 29 Mar 2018 - Posted: 30 Jan 2018
The commencement of the first school term provides an opportunity to remind drivers to slow down and take care around school zones.

With Term 1 of the school year underway, designated school zones are back in operation.

Parking restrictions apply in school zones to help keep children safe. They protect sight distances, provide safe pick up and drop off opportunities and minimize confusion where children are crossing roads.

Council Rangers and local Police patrol school zones to enforce parking restrictions and illegal road user behaviour.  Fines and loss of demerit points can apply.

Road users are asked to be especially vigilant when picking up, dropping off or passing by school zones. There is nothing more important than keeping our children safe and sound.

For further information on school zone safety please visit the RMS website  or phone the RMS on 13 22 13.
