ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) – It is time to head again to high school, and for police, which means time to return to reminding individuals in regards to the right strategy to drive by way of a college zone.
The Alexandria Police Division stated you will need to concentrate when driving by way of a college zone, particularly since velocity limits drop in class zones.
One of many largest reminders police must make is to inform drivers to place down the cellphone. The state has numerous legal guidelines in place pertaining to cellphones in class zones.
“One other factor that individuals won’t concentrate on is that Louisiana regulation prohibits any form of cellphone use in a college zone,” stated Cpl. Wade Bourgeois with the Alexandria Police Division. “We wish to be sure that individuals know that. Palms free shouldn’t be allowed. Texting, even cellphone calls, none of that’s allowed in a college zone. Please put your telephones down and preserve an eye fixed out for teenagers.”
APD may have loads of officers readily available to verify nobody is breaking the regulation in a college zone. It is also costly in case you’re caught in your cellphone. A primary offense will price you $500 and for a second offense, the positive is as much as $1,000. In the event you trigger a crash, the positive is doubled.
