Drivers warned of school risks


SOMERVILLE Highway Patrol is reminding drivers to slow down at school zones as the school year resumes.

Police will strictly enforce the 40kph speed limits and be on the lookout for unsafe driving behaviour on the Mornington Peninsula.

They say students could be distracted as they catch up with friends after the holidays and their road safety skills “could be a bit rusty”.

Police will be working with Local Laws officers to reinforce parking rules at drop-off and pick-up times. They say parents “should be aware of their local parking restrictions”.
