In Suffolk County, police are looking for speeders, tailgaters and those who are texting while driving in a school zone.

So far, cops have been busy, handing out 2,700 tickets in just two weeks.

Police Commissioner Richard Dormer said it’s all about keeping kids safe, so slow down.

School zone enforcement will continue throughout the school year.

  1. Diane K. says:

    Why don’t they do this in Nassau County as well? I live two blocks from a school in Franklin Square and cars speed up and down my block constantly. They recently added one stop sign two blocks away but that is not enough. There are multiple corners where there is no stop sign in either direction. How can this be? It’s dangerous. Why don’t they add speed bumps like they do in Queens County? That almost certainly will drastically cut down on this problem. There are many kids that walk to/from school past my house and they are not safe.
