LPD Hands Out Speed Warnings in School Zones as Classes Resume

As Polk public school classes resumed Wednesday, Lakeland Police officers gave warnings to speeders in school zones, reminding them that a ticket would cost them $404, News Channel 8 reported. “Pay attention to those flashing lights because those speeds are going to be reduced by a significant amount and if you get caught speeding in those, the speeding fines are now doubled,” Sgt. Douglass Mills said.
