School Zones – They keep our children safe – Understanding the signs & penalties
There are many ways you can help keep our children safe around school - correct use of the Kiss and Drop zones, slowing down to 40 km/hour in school zones and parking legally.
New signs have been installed in Boyle Street and Hill Street to remind drivers to put Safety First around school zones. There are also have two traffic wardens who operate the pedestrian crossing at the busy times each morning and afternoon during school terms.
The Northern Beaches Council’s website has a number of resources to help raise awareness of school zone safety:
