[ARCHIVED] Erie Police to Conduct “Back to School” Traffic Enforcement

In addition to normal school zone enforcement activities, effective immediately the Erie Police Department will be conducting “Back to School” traffic enforcement initiative throughout the community. This initiative, will allow for the placement of Erie Patrol Officers each day, at and around the schools for the purpose of traffic and pedestrian safety.

According to Erie Chief of Police Marc Vasquez, drivers are cautioned to be aware of and obey speed limits around the various schools within Erie. “Now that school is back in session, it is incumbent upon motorists to pay attention to pedestrians – especially children and to eliminate distractions while driving,” Vasquez said.

Chief Vasquez said officers will be assigned to watch for all traffic violations, including motorists speeding through school zones, vehicles driving past school bus warning devices and non-compliance with seat belt laws.

“There will be strict enforcement of the speed limits in school zones,” said Vasquez. “For vehicles traveling 20 miles per hour above the posted limit, fines may exceed $300.00 and could include additional charges such as Reckless Driving,” he said.
