Back to School

Tasmania's school kids return for the year next week. Many of them will be going to school for the first time.

Others would have been away from school crossings and buses for six weeks. Many will be unused to looking out for traffic and being road safe. That’s why all drivers, kids and parents should take extra care around school zones and school buses. The speed limit is 40kmh and, depending on the conditions, it might be safer to driver slower. Remember, when a school bus’s lights are flashing, the speed limit near them is 40kmh.
