Drivers are being reminded to slow down in school areas once again.
With some students in New Orleans returning to in-person classes, City Hall announced Thursday that it will reactivate school zone cameras beginning Monday after six months of closed campuses due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Officials say the school zone warning lights will flash during their usual hours from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.
The posted speed limit in school zones during these times is 20 mph, and drivers are forbidden to use mobile phones while passing through the zone.
The city's announcement came the same day that Orleans Parish's pre-kindergarten through fourth grade students began returning to in-person classes for the first time since a statewide school shutdown.
