Mundelein Police will conduct increased traffic enforcement in school zones from Aug. 12 through Sept. 5, officials said in a news release. The enforcement will be conducted in the morning hours before the start of school and in the afternoon hours when schoolchildren are dismissed. The enforcement is designed to address the following areas: Speeding in a school zone; pedestrians' right of way -- yield at all crosswalks when pedestrians are present; and distracted driving -- specifically, no cellphone use in school zones; and seat belt violations. "During this enforcement period, officers will initially distribute informational fliers to remind drivers to use caution in school zones. As time progresses, enforcement may include citations for any violations observed," Sgt. Pat Gara said. Gara said the goal is to raise awareness and remind drivers that school is back in session.
