Tauranga drivers are soon to be under the spotlight as police tighten up on speed around Western Bay of Plenty schools.
Western Bay of Plenty road policing manager acting Senior Sergeant Wayne Hunter says a campaign is set to begin in the first week of term one.
“We are running our back to school campaign targeting speed outside of schools in the Western Bay of Plenty.
“Police will be mainly outside of primary schools as this is where we have young children who are newly starting out.
“With everyone adjusting back into their day-to-day routines, we are wanting to send out a reminder drivers who may have forgotten some of the road rules over the break.”
He says drivers need to exercise additional care while driving near schools.
