Remember to Observe School Zones

As students prepare to return to school, the City reminds all motorists to observe school zones and stay alert near schools, crosswalks and playgrounds.

Below are a few reminders to keep motorists and pedestrians safe this school year:

  • The school zone speed limit is 20 mph.
  • Use of cell phones in school zones is prohibited.
  • All vehicles must stop behind the painted white crosswalk line.
  • Vehicles and pedestrians must obey the direction of crossing guards.

Garland has 74 school crossing guards covering approximately 41 schools. They've been in training for the big first day! Check 'em out in this video!
