Are school zones generally marked as ending or starting somewhere?

I never noticed the sign that was marked "End School Zone" before on Brookhurst by Target.

There's sometimes a 500-foot marker, but it's not required to be any place special, and AFAIK it's always well inside the GFSZ 1000 feet.

Isn't that a traffic sign? Gun free school zones are marked, you are spozed to no.

So then I'm curious as to the point of having the sign...

So you know when you can speed.

Traffic laws (25 in school zone when children are present) must be identified with a sign. This allows streets to be so designated that are on the routes kids take to/from rather than just the streets touching the school grounds.

The traffic signs have no bearing toward GFSZ/DFSZ boundaries.

If you are seeing yellow crosswalks then there is a school near by.

@ socal: i know what sign you're talking about, but this just says "end school zone" looks like a new sign put in.

I just noticed a "school zone" sign near my house recently. I was surprised because it was pretty far from a school.

626.9. (http://law.justia.com/california/codes/pen/626-626.11.html) (a) This section shall be known, and may be cited, as the
Gun-Free School Zone Act of 1995...

(k) This section does not require that notice be posted regarding
the proscribed conduct.

The sign in question seems to be directly used for the purpose of marking the end of a school speed zone.

What we really need is a sign with an EBR on it that says: "Nut free school zone parents on patrol!"

Sounds like a perect protest sign for an anti-626.9 protest.
