Speeding tickets to be written at school crossing

EAST MANATEE -- The Manatee County Sheriff's Office and Florida Highway Patrol will once again be enforcing speeding violations in a school zone at State Road 70 and River Club Boulevard, the Sheriff's Office announced this afternoon in a press release.

In September of 2008, a local judge ruled that the signage and markings of the River Club school zone did not meet FDOT standards.

Improvements have been made to the school zone and it is now in compliance with FDOT standards. The speed limit for the River Club School zone is 20 mph.
