Driver compliance with school speed zones may be lower when a stop sign or traffic signal is located within the zone because drivers may forget the lowered speed limit when they accelerate from a stop at an intersection. The use of a rear-facing beacon was evaluated at four sites. The rear-facing beacon improved compliance, with a reduction of about 10 percent in the number of vehicles exceeding the school speed limit.
