Back to school

At the beginning of each term, drivers are urged to keep a watchful eye for children around school zones.

School zone limits of 40km/h apply between 7am and 5pm on school days. Slow down and expect the unexpected.

Children are often unpredictable and are particularly at risk around road environments due to their undeveloped peripheral vision and hearing.

Parents should remind children about road safety and park safely when dropping of or picking up students from school.

Read road safety information for parents.

You may be fined or given demerit points if you fail to obey school zone speed limits. For more information go to  traffic offences and penalties on
