Area schools resume classes on Tuesday, August 14th, and the enforcement of the reduced speed school zones in Salina will resume on the same date. Drivers are encouraged to be additionally aware of children, school buses, the school zones around schools, and the reduced speed limits.
Kansas law states when a school bus stop arm is extended and the flashing lights on the bus have been activated, vehicles traveling in both directions must come to a complete stop before reaching the bus. Vehicles shall not proceed until the school bus resumes motion or the flashing red lights and stop arm are no longer activated. Kansas law also states vehicles must stop and yield to pedestrians in marked crosswalks.
The flashing speed limit sign beacons will be activated on Tuesday, August 7th, one week in advance of the first day of school on Tuesday, August 14th. Motorists are encouraged to practice extra caution when traveling in the reduced speed school zone sign locations.
