To reinforce reduced speed limits near schools, Bellevue posts school zone signs (20 mph when flashing or 20 mph when children are present) in locations around the city.
COVID-19 has limited in-person learning during the 2020-2021 school year. As of January 2021, students are returning to school buildings on a staggered basis. Please obey these signs and watch for children walking to and from school. Fines are double in school zones.
Also, make sure you understand when to stop if school bus flashing lights are on. To improve student safety, a number of buses are equipped with stop paddle cameras. Drivers who illegally pass a bus may be issued a $419 citation.
