RAYTOWN POLICE REMIND MOTORISTS THAT SCHOOL WILL BE IN SESSION
Raytown Police are reminding motorists that the Raytown Schools will soon be in session and urge motorists to look out for the safety of our young pedestrians walking to schools and getting on and off school busses. Raytown Schools will be in session starting August 19th, 2013. The school zones in Raytown are in force from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, when school is in session. In the interest of the safety of our children, Raytown Police will be enforcing these school speed limits. In addition to the normal fines for speeding, violations in a school zone carry an additional $50.00 dollar penalty. It only takes a second for a child to run out into the road after a toy or windblown item and the results can be forever tragic. Please slow down, pay attention to your driving and help us save lives.
