Sioux Falls Public Schools started classes for the 2021-21 school year Thursday, August 26. That means lots of parents will be dropping their kids off at school; that also means lots of older kids will be driving to school.

And that means very busy school zones. The posted speed limit in Sioux Falls School zones is 15 Miles Per Hour. If you get caught speeding in these zones not only could it cost you a lot of money it could cost someone their life.
