The City of South Bend’s Bureau of Traffic & Lighting will activate 28 school zone flashers on Monday, August 13 and Tuesday, August 14 to prepare drivers for the first day of school. City crews want to make sure flashers are working properly in case any repairs need to be made.
Even if school is not in session, drivers must obey the school zone speed limit and all applicable traffic laws when flashers are blinking. If drivers see a flasher not working properly, they should report it to 311.
The tests will correspond with the regular school zone schedules, which are 7:45 to 9:15 a.m. and 2:45 to 4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday. In addition, the flashers on South Eddy Street near School Field will run every Friday from August 17 to October 12 from 6:00 to 11:00 p.m.
