BUFFALO, N.Y. — The city of Buffalo is weighing possible changes to enforcing reduced speed limits in school zones.
As of right now, Buffalo has no enforceable signs in school zones. There are the brightly colored school zone signs, but police cannot legally enforce the limits on them because they are only advisory signs.
Buffalo Common Council member, Joel Feroleto, spoke about the need to adopt a new resolution to fix that Wednesday afternoon.
"In the last three years, the city of Buffalo public schools have opened 21 community schools. So schools that previously had a majority of students arriving by bus, now have a majority of students walking to school."
Council member Feroleto says he hopes to have a new policy for reduced school zone speed limits in place as soon as possible.
