Woman off the road after doing 76km/h through a school zone

A WOMAN has been fined more than $1000 and had her licence suspended for three months after being caught driving 76km/h in a school zone at Mullumbimby.

She was one of 14 people caught speeding through school zones in the Tweed-Byron Local Area Command on Wednesday, as part Operation Compliance targeting school zone driving offences.

Senior Sergeant Chad George of Highway Patrol said it was "alarming that people are continuing to drive through school zones at speed".

In the Richmond LAC, six drivers were charged with exceeding school zone speeds, while five were caught using a mobile phone while driving through a school zone.
