2005 Back to School Traffic Enforcement Project

The Lincoln Police Department will be conducting its “Back to School” traffic enforcement project beginning Monday, August 29th. This project, funded by a grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety, will allow the placement of additional officers each day at and around the public and parochial schools in Lincoln for the purpose of traffic and pedestrian safety.

Strict Enforcement of the “25 MPH” flashing yellow school zones will be done. Fines over $400 could be levied for speeding violations through a school zone during the times of operation.

This project will continue through Friday, September 9th. Drivers are cautioned to be aware of the flashing yellow lights and obey speed limits around the various elementary and middle schools. During the first week of school classes will be dismissed one hour early with the school zones running accordingly.
