Posted on 09/02/2019
Speed Limit sign that says 15 mphStudent safety is our top priority.  During the summer, the Roanoke City School Board and Roanoke City Council approved an ordinance that decreases the speed limit from 25 mph to 15 mph in certain neighborhood school zones in the City. 

The new speed limit will be in effect during arrival and dismissal of school.  Roanoke Police will increase its enforcement of the new speed limit.  Please reduce your speed and watch for children when passing through school zones.
