From the Comanche Police Department

Active School Zones including Comanche ISD and Premier School are located at: North Pearl 7AM to 5PM, East Highland 7Am to 5PM, East Walcott 7AM to 5PM, Valley Forge 7AM to 5PM, North Austin (when lights are flashing,) FM 3381 (when lights are flashing) and South Austin (when lights are flashing.)

Also remember NO cell phone use in these designated school zone areas!

As school is about to start once again remember that drivers MUST stop for school buses anytime the red lights are activated. There are no locations in Comanche County or the City of Comanche that are exempt from this requirement. The fine for passing a stopped school bus is a minimum of $500. For the sake of a child’s life and for your bank account please be observant and mindful of school buses this school year.

Sec. 545.066. PASSING A SCHOOL BUS; OFFENSE. (a) An operator on a highway, when approaching from either direction a school bus stopped on the highway to receive or discharge a student: shall stop before reaching the school bus when the bus is operating a visual signal as required by Section 547.701; and may not proceed until: (A) the school bus resumes motion; (B) the operator is signaled by the bus driver to proceed; or (C) the visual signal is no longer actuated.

Pay attention and always remember flashing red kids ahead!
