School zone crackdown


FOUR motorists were fined for speeding outside Mt Erin High School, Robinsons Road, Frankston South, and two for speeding past Mornington Primary School, Tanti Avenue, last week.

The drivers travelling 10-24kph over the limit were each fined $322 and lost three demerit points.

Somerville Highway Patrol warns motorists that its members and council officers are keeping an eye on school zones in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula areas after receiving complaints about a range of incidents – mainly speeding.

“Most people do the right thing, however some drivers are committing offences with little regard to the safety of children, parents and other road users,” Leading Senior Constable Greg Wolfe said.

Applicable fines include: Exceeding the speed limit by less than 10kph, $201 fine and one demerit point; exceeding the speed limit by 10-24kph, $322 and three points; exceeding the speed limit by 25-29kph, $443 and three months licence suspension.
