Media Release

Hawaiʻi Island police remind motorists about the dangers of speeding in a school zone.

During morning and afternoon hours, children and school crossing guards have encountered numerous near misses while crossing in crosswalks fronting elementary schools island wide.

School Crossing Guards are present at most elementary schools to assist with the safe crossing of children, and are trained to temporarily hold traffic until all children have completely crossed the roadway.

Speeding in a school zone is a traffic violation with a fine of $307, and failure to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk incurs a $150 fine.
