Speeding in a School Zone

Maybe you got distracted by changing the radio station. Or, perhaps you reached for your coffee and had to rescue it from tipping over. Either way, you didn’t pay attention to the road and missed the sign announcing the school zone—or even the school itself. By then, it was too late. You drove too fast through the school zone, and before you knew it, you were being pulled over for speeding in a school zone.

Anything to do with the safety and health of children is taken very seriously by society and our lawmakers, and rightly so. Certain areas of roadways, those that pass schools and school crossings, are marked to indicate the lesser speed of 15 mph. This is to ensure that children who walk to and from school, or even those who ride with parents, are kept safe from harm on school property. Driving too fast through those restricted areas puts children in danger, and the law deals harshly with it.

Speeding is the most common reason for the police to issue traffic tickets in Pittsburgh, and those tickets can add up to big headaches. You can find yourself with points added to your license, slapped with huge fines, and faced with higher insurance premiums. You could even lose your driver’s license. This is a situation where you need someone like the attorneys at Logue Law Group to support you. Our Pittsburgh Speeding Ticket Lawyers are highly successful, and can assist you by getting these issues minimized, or even help you avoid them altogether. Our Criminal Lawyers are the most experienced and proficient attorneys that you’ll find anywhere in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

School Zone Speeding Facts

In the city of Pittsburgh, school zone speed limits are always 15 MPH.

During certain hours during the school day, you can be charged with speeding if you go only 1 MPH above the speed limit.

A conviction for driving 16 MPH or above in a school zone will get you 3 points on your license and costs/fines.

If you are caught a second time, your license will be suspended for 60 days.

Steps to Take if the Cops Pull You Over

  • Be polite
  • Do not argue with the cop or get angry
  • Turn off the vehicle, but don’t try to get out

Mr. Logue is good for one reason, he cares. A client is not a quick buck. He always answers his phone, day or night and he understands the law better than anyone. He always answers my calls for both corporate and personal legal decisions and I have a ton of questions. His rates are reasonable too. Fair and firm. Anonymous
