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.
Please consult the school zone flashing beacon schedule for the for the 2021-22 school year. 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.
