Caution urged for school-zone driving

Scottsdale schools are back in session Monday. And for Scottsdale motorists, that means the return of school zones.

The Scottsdale Police Department and Scottsdale Unified School District are reminding drivers to watch for school zones starting Monday.

All Scottsdale school zones have a 15 mph speed limit. It’s illegal to pass another vehicle in school zones. Violators can expect tickets of more than $200.
