Oakland County School Speed Limit Sign


open quoteThe sign tells drivers that on school days, they need to slow down to 25 between 6:49-7:15, 7:52-8:22 and 8:37-9:07 during the mornings and 2:03-2:33, 3:04-3:34 and 3:59-4:29 during afternoons.

The three schools along that stretch of road are Lakeland High, White Lake Middle and Lakewood Elementary schools. . . .

Ed Harris, White Lake Police Chief, said a meeting is being called with the White Lake supervisor, Huron Valley School district and the Road Commission of Oakland County to discuss the sign. Harris said the township did not erect the sign.

“We are aware of it and trying to resolve it,” he said.

School zone speed limits are determined by the motor vehicle code, Harris said.

Harris said it is not a speed trap for his officers, noting that patrols near the school are “hit and miss.”close quote (Read more)
