June is the month school’s out for summer, and Bonney Lake police officers will use it to enforce 20-mile-per-hour speeds on roads frequented by children.

Patrol officers will be enforcing the required 20-mph speed limits in park and school zones as part of their traffic emphasis detail during the month of June, according to a tweet from @BLPoliceDepartment, the BLPD Public Information Officer account. The traffic emphasis detail for May was proper seatbelt use.

“Please slow down in those areas (and) avoid a infraction,” the account wrote.

Sound advice: traffic fines double in school zones.

The @BLPoliceDepartment account also announced today the police station’s lobby information board has been published online via photo-sharing site Flickr. The lobby screen runs a constant slideshow of both general and timely public safety information, updated each week.
