NC General Statute 20-141.1 Speeding in a School Zone

A person who drives a motor vehicle in a school zone at a speed greater than the speed limit set and posted under this section is responsible for an infraction and is required to pay a penalty of two hundred and fifty dollars.

How the McGee Law Firm Can Help

Three driver’s license points can be assessed if you are speeding in a school zone. Prosecutors treat school zone speeding cases differently because no one wants to see a student get hurt.

If you are convicted of speeding in a school zone, you will not be eligible for the Safe Driver Incentive Plan. You will also face an increase in insurance premiums.

To attempt to mitigate the damage, we will negotiate driving school or community service to help keep your rates from rising.

The signs must indicate the time of day and the posted speed limit.
