Corpus Christi, TX elementary school working to get ‘speed limit’ signs posted after not having any for decades

An elementary school that has been around for over 50 years, has yet to have school speed limit signs posted around its campus. Concerned residents and school officials in Taft say it’s time to do something about it.

A speeding ticket can cost you a pretty penny, and a speeding ticket in a school zone will leave a bigger dent in your wallet. But, not in Taft.

This area has never been zoned and it’s been an elementary all of our lives for over 50 to 60 years,” said Dianne Garcia.

The area surrounding Woodroe Petty Elementary has never had ‘speed limit’ or ‘cell phone use prohibited’ signs posted, so law enforcement officers have never been able to enforce those rules.
