Be extra careful near schools, especially at school start and finish times. There will be children around, and lots of traffic. 

  • You must slow down to 25km/h in school zones, at children's crossings when the lights are flashing, and when passing a school bus that has stopped to pick up or drop off children.
  • If you're picking up or dropping off children, park away from areas where children are moving around. It's always best to be safe, and keep your car as far away as you can from groups of children.
  • School zones are signposted, and zigzag lines are marked on the road where possible. These lines show you’re approaching a school zone.
