Breaking News: Call 210-745-2825 to speak with a traffic ticket defense lawyer in San Antonio regarding traffic citations for speeding in a school zone, ticket warrants, commercial driver’s license tickets or a minor in possession citation.
On March 28th, 2012 the City of San Antonio’s Department of Public Works sent out a memo notifying recipients that in early April of 2012 the Department of Public Works would be adjusting the posted afternoon time periods on some of the school zone signs within several school districts in the Bexar County area.
The memo indicates that for school zones without flashing school zone lights, signs will be changed to indicate school zones will be in effect one extra hour later in the afternoon. Affected signs will change from ‘2 p.m. – 4 p.m.’ to ‘2 p.m. – 5 p.m.’ This change is purportedly to better reflect the ending of the school day for many middle and high schools city wide.
Traffic ticket courts hate to see speeding in a school zone. Both traffic ticket prosecutors and ticket court judges are typically very hard on citizens stopped for speeding in a school zone. Auto insurance companies also look poorly upon school zone traffic violation convictions. Serious enough speed can even cause you to lose your automobile liability insurance.
We all want to keep kids safe. Still, sometimes, school zones sneak up on us and even the most cautious and well intentioned driver finds him or herself the recipient of a school zone ticket. This is not the kind of traffic ticket you should attempt to resolve on your own. A traffic ticket attorney from The Coquat Law Firm can help ensure a school zone traffic ticket does not end up on your permanent driving record. We have attorneys who practice exclusively in the municipal and justice courts, resolving only traffic ticket violations.
