Beginning on Monday, August 26 through Friday, August 30, the Sioux Falls Police Department along with the South Dakota Highway Patrol and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office will be running this year’s School Zone Enforcement and Safety Week. It is a multi-jurisdictional saturation of all school zones in the City of Sioux Falls.
Additional officers will be out each day during school hours, focusing on speed enforcement and accident avoidance with the hope of providing a safer environment for children and the motoring public.
A reminder that the speed limit in a school zone is 15 mph. Drivers are encouraged to slow down and be aware of their surroundings.
