Caloundra Police worked in partnership with Sunshine Coast Council ticketing officers again to conduct high visibility enforcement of eight schools in Caloundra for the ‘Back to School’ component of the State Operation Cold Snap.

Caloundra Police issued 40 infringements during last week between 7am-9am and 2pm-4pm each day. The majority of the offences were for speeding in school zones. The highest speed detected in a 40km/h school zone was 59km/h.

Police were disappointed with the number of drivers detected speeding in school zones.

This operation was an initiative of police to partner with the council and raise awareness to the public about safety in school zones.

Police wanted to ensure all motorists were prioritising the safety of children as they travel to and from school whether they are on foot, riding on a bike, in a car or using public transport.

Reduced speed limits are integral to road safety in school zones where children are vulnerable due to their unpredictability and the difficulty for motorists to see small children.
