Community News


The Momence Police would like to remind everyone that Monday, August 17, 2015 is Back-to-School Day. The Momence Police will be concentrating their efforts in the Momence School Zones to ensure the safety of our students, school staff members, school busses, and the parents traveling in and around this area. We are asking that the motoring public be aware of the additional traffic in and around the schools and in particular, be aware of the increased pedestrian traffic.

As a reminder we would like to go over a few Rules of the Road related to the school zone and our safety efforts. The Speed Limit in a School Zone is 20 MPH that speed restriction starts at the point where the sign is posted indicating a School Zone; there are no exceptions to the 20 MPH speed limit in the School Zone. It is unlawful to pass another vehicle on the right while that vehicle is waiting to make a left turn; additionally it is illegal to pass another vehicle on either side, left or right in an intersection. The use of cell phones, other than by hands free device is prohibited at all times, as is texting while driving; if your cell phone is in your hand it is a violation. It is unlawful to pass a Stopped School Bus when the red lights and stop arm are activated. Pedestrians in a Cross Walk have the Right of Way and you are required to yield and/or stop.

Please be mindful of your surroundings and exercise caution when traveling in and around the School Zone. Your responsible and safe driving will ensure the safety of not only you, but our children as well.

We thank you for your attention and wish you all safe travel, wherever your destination.
