Actually show you why you're putting kids in more danger when you don't follow the school zone speed signs.
School zones haven't been in affect because schools been out of session as they are back in session we want to watch our speed.
Lets take this school zone for example-- you know the one on laurel street and and north 10th street in central point -- that is right where jewett elementary is and it has a school zone speed of 20 miles per hour.
'we want to make sure that we are looking for pedestrians at the crosswalks.
Now lets say -- you are driving the speed limit -- even in ideal condition the national highway traffic safety administration says that -- your car will stop in 63 feet --- 44 feet for your reaction time and 19 feet for braking distance.
And we want to make sure that we give ourselves enough time to stop and give ourselves safe passage for those kids.
Lets say if you're speeding going a 30 in a 20you almost double the distance it will take to stop -- your car will stop at 119 feet.
Keep the speed down give yourself lots of time and space" now remember this school year to slow down and be safe --- "biggest thing i can tell you is don't be in a rush" now remember these numbers were
