HOUSTON -- As students head back to school, it's good to "school" you on some school zone traffic rules.
It is illegal to speed in school zones, as well as text and drive.
Fines for using your phone in a school zone are going up starting September 1st to $260 for your first offense.
Also, you'll get a hefty fine if you try to pass a school bus. First offense is anywhere from $200 to a $1,000.
Just be safe and think of the kiddos and we'll all get an A+ when it comes to safety.
