ONEIDA COUNTY --- Starting Monday, State and County Law Enforcement will be doing extra patrols of the roadways near schools. It's part of the Governor's weeklong No Empty Chair Campaign. The campaign aims to ensure young drivers are safe on the roadways.
County, State and Local Law Enforcement will increase their presence in the vicinity of local High Schools and will be vigilant about violations of specific infractions throughout the week, while also enforcing all other vehicle and traffic laws.
Monday's focus will be on school zone speed limits.
Current law says school zone limits are in effect between 7 am and 6 pm or when the beacon lights on the school speed signs are flashing.
