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.

Speeding is the most common reason for the police to issue traffic tickets in Pittsburgh, and those tickets can add up to big headaches. They can cost you points on your license, hefty fines, and high insurance premiums. You could even lose your driver’s license. This is where we at Sean Logue Law can help you. We have the best Pittsburgh Speeding Ticket Lawyers, and we can help you minimize these issues, or even avoid them altogether. We have the most experienced and skilled Criminal Lawyers that you’ll find anywhere in the Pittsburgh area.

Facts About Speeding in a School Zone

In Pittsburgh, as in all of Pennsylvania, the speed limit in a school zone is always 15 MPH.

In an active school zone, 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 ignition, but avoid getting out of the vehicle
