STUDENTS went back to school yesterday after their September holidays.
Speed limits apply in school zones until December 18, the end of Term 4.
Speed limits will be reduced to either 40km/h or 60km/h outside schools in the morning from 8am to 9.30am and in the afternoon from 2.30pm to 4pm.
The school speed zone limits are clearly signposted with permanent speed limit signs, advance warning signs, time based signs or electronic variable signs.
Drivers are reminded to be patient and on alert around school zones as children are unpredictable and difficult to see.
Children and parents are urged to use the staffed crossings, like these children at the Billson Street, Wonthaggi Primary School crossing.
