A friendly reminder that school zones are 20MPH.

PLEASE DO NOT EXCEED this speed throughout the posted zone. Wilbraham has posted school zones at the following locations:

Main Street (3 locations)
Cathedral HS, Wilbraham Monson Academy, Minnechaug & Mile Tree Schools

Stony Hill Rd (2 locations)
Wilbraham Middle School, Stony Hill Rd School

Soule Rd (1 location)

Secondly, PLEASE obey crosswalks within town. The Crosswalk law is as follows:

 When traffic control signals are not in place or not in operation the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right of way, slowing down or stopping if need be so to yield, to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk marked in accordance with standards established by the department of highways if the pedestrian is on that half of the traveled part of the way on which the vehicle is traveling or if the pedestrian approaches from the opposite half of the traveled part of the way to within 10 feet of that half of the traveled part of the way on which said vehicle is traveling.

No driver of a vehicle shall pass any other vehicle which has stopped at a marked crosswalk to permit a pedestrian to cross, nor shall any such operator enter a marked crosswalk while a pedestrian is crossing or until there is a sufficient space beyond the crosswalk to accommodate the vehicle he is operating, notwithstanding that a traffic control signal may indicate that vehicles may proceed.

Whoever violates any provision of this section shall be punished by a fine of not more than $200.
