CHANDLER, AZ (CBS 5) - Do you know all of the rules while driving in a school zone? Many people are unaware of some basic laws.
After multiple emails, Stanley Roberts with the help of the Chandler Police Department looked at a little known law that sits in plain sight.
It is called the no passing in school zones law where a driver cannot pass or overtake another vehicle in a marked school zone. Ofc. Eddie Cuthbertson educated drivers on the rules of the road.
The reason why this law was even created was to prevent drivers from hitting children that may inadvertently run into traffic and the car behind it may not see the children run across the street.
Look specifically at section F.
A vehicle shall not proceed at a speed of more than fifteen miles per hour between the portable signs placed on the highway indicating that there shall be no passing, that school is in session and that the driver shall stop when children are in the crosswalk.
