Bloomington, IL – As temperatures rise and students increasingly walk and bike to school, Bloomington Police Department (BPD) has announced stricter enforcement of traffic regulations in school zones. 

According to the BPD, adherence to the 20 MPH speed limit in these areas is mandatory, with violations resulting in fines ranging from $150 to $300. The BPD emphasizes the critical need for drivers to avoid distractions, observe crossing guards’ signals, and never pass stopped school buses or vehicles waiting for pedestrians. 

For children and parents, the department reiterates the importance of staying on sidewalks, wearing helmets while biking, and paying attention to surroundings, especially when crossing the street.
