Unfortunately, the Maryland Senate has decided to prioritize drivers speeding through school zones over students. Even though our students aren’t guaranteed bus service for over a mile in many cases around a school and current law allows school zones to be within 1/2 mile of the school, the Maryland Senate voted to shrink default zones to roads adjacent to a school and within 500 feet of an entrance. The only recourse is if a traffic engineer determines our children’s safety won’t impede speeding. This is a bad bill and bad for our children’s safety. They need safe routes to school and they need SB11 to go down in the House of Delegates.
