School Zones, Lower Speed Limits Return Monday

             School zone flashing lights and the lower speed limits that accompany them will be on and enforced beginning Monday, Aug. 24, around the schools that will be used as food pickup locations.
            The exact hours the school zones will be in effect may vary among the different locations.  There are 50 schools in unincorporated Clark County that will have their school zones activated beginning Monday.  The reduced speed limits are necessary for the safety of the large numbers of people expected to go to each school to pick up food.
