The life of a child is priceless and not worth the risk by speeding through a school zone.  Children are more vulnerable than adults to being hit by a car — they tend to be less cautious than adults, are less visible due to their size, and they are less likely to survive a hit by a vehicle. 

When approaching a school zone, slow down.  The few seconds you may save speeding through a school zone is not worth the fine, but more importantly, it’s not worth the life of a child.
