The Lafayette Police Department begins a campaign each year called, “Give the Kids a Brake”.
During the first two weeks of school Lafayette Police Officers will be enforcing speed limits in all school zones. It is important as citizens that we adhere to those speed limits. Each school zone is clearly marked with signs and in most cases flashing lights. Drivers who regularly travel to work on roadways that border schools should allow extra travel time for the increase in traffic in the mornings and afternoon.
They should also avoid being distracted within the vehicle due to student pedestrian traffic.
