Motorists may notice some new signage as they approach school zones in Garland. In December, the City Council authorized the installation of appropriate signage warning drivers that the use of cell phones is prohibited in school zones.
State law allows for enforcement of such a ban, provided the appropriate warning signage is posted. The Garland Police Department will begin enforcing the state law once the required signage is installed.
Transportation crews began installing the signs in January and expect to complete the process by March. Garland has 106 school zones.
