Where the worst school zone speed­sters are

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

BEL­MONT, Brent­wood and Melville are among the five worst of­fend­ing sub­urbs in Perth for speed­ing in school zones.

The un­for­tu­nate top five berth is a re­sult of a com­bined 1241 in­fringe­ments is­sued within the three sub­urbs’ var­i­ous 40km/h school zones last year.

Most of the mo­torists fined were ex­ceed­ing the speed limit by 10 to 19km/h. In one case in Bel­mont, a school zone speed­ster was clocked at more than 30km/h.

Mean­while, Meadow Springs again topped the list as hav­ing the most school zone rac­ers in Perth with 892 in­fringe­ments – down from 2013 when the Man­durah sub­urb racked up a whop­ping 2043 fines around schools. Man­durah it­self also had 300 fines last year.

Road Safety Min­is­ter Liza Har­vey said school zone speed­ing had dropped over the past few years.

“We will con­tinue get­ting the mes­sage out there that if you speed through a school zone, you are en­dan­ger­ing the lives of chil­dren,” she said.
