The Mukilteo Police Department will increase their traffic emphasis patrols in school zones to enforce speed violations. Due to many school closure days because of the record snowfall, the Mukilteo School District’s school year will conclude on Tuesday, June 25.
“It is important that students feel safe as they walk to and from school,” said Police Chief Cheol Kang. “There are five schools in the City of Mukilteo with varying start and end times. Additional officers will be deployed to provide a visible presence to deter and stop speeders and aggressive drivers. Together, we can help our children feel safe and enjoy the coming summer months.”
When the school zone lights are activated, driving speed should be reduced to 20 miles per hour. Violating the school zone limit is a traffic infraction and could result in a fine from $214 to $808 depending on the violator’s speed. The goal is to gain compliance to the speed law and provide a safe environment for our young pedestrians.
