    They need to be patrolling the school zones! It never fails, every single time I am driving through a school zone and the lights are blinking to inform drivers to obey the posted speed limit in the school zone, there is always someone zooming right on by going at least the normal speed or even above the speed limit and just totally ignoring the 'active' school zone's speed limit! These are children's lives that are potentially at risk! Yes, the driver would be the responsible one in the event there would be an accident, It is the police officer's DUTY and PURPOSE of their job to ensure the safety of others and to reprimand and punish the ones that are breaking the law, ESPECIALLY when it does have the potential of putting other lives in danger. It makes me angry to see that less than a mile down the road, there are two patrol cars parked side by side in a parking lot while the officers are chatting. They need to be doing their job and cracking down on these people that can't slow down, be cautious and obey the law while driving in an 'active' school zone! Nice to know our tax dollars are paying for such officers to sit roadside and chat!

    Why bother lowering the speed limits in the construction zones? Drivers don't obey the ones we have now.

    I believe something needs to be done---Since some drivers just don't have the common sense, to know to slow down when they are in a congested construction area.
