The Manlius Police Department will saturate the six school zones inside its jurisdiction Sept. 10 in an enforcement effort to ensure compliance with all applicable traffic laws.
This semi-annual traffic safety campaign is focused on the safety of students as they walk to and from their local schools. The goal is to gain the willing cooperation of all motorists traveling through these zones, however aggressive enforcement will occur.
The department will utilize multiple officers in marked and unmarked cars to enforce the school speed zone requirements in all the eight school zones which include Minoa Elementary on Main Street in Minoa; Fremont Road at Fremont Elementary; Salt Springs Road at Immaculate Conception; Fayetteville-Manlius Road in front of Fayetteville Elementary and Wellwood Middle Schools; Mott Road in front of Mott Road Elementary; and Enders Road in front of the Enders Road Elementary and Eagle Hill Middle Schools.
Enforcement of lower speeds for school zones begins at 7 a.m. and end at 6 p.m.
The New York State Governor's Traffic Safety Committee and the Onondaga County Traffic Safety Committee are funding this effort.
