Peru Police share driving tips for the start of the school year

Posted by wlpo on August 19, 2014

You might have a lot on your mind when bringing your kids to school, but don’t let that stop you from slowing down and paying attention.  The first day of school for Peru Public Schools is Wednesday. Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says you’ll see marked police cars in the morning and afternoon as officers trying to get the new school year off to a safe start.

Remember, when you’re in a school zone, the speed limit is 20 miles-per-hour. Bernabei says the fines are more severe if you’re caught speeding in a school zone.

Eventually the police officers will trade their marked cars for unmarked cars to make sure you’re following the rules.
