Coomera second worst for speeding in school zones

It has been revealed that Coomera has the unfortunate title of being second worst in the state when it comes to motorists speeding through school zones.

Figures from Queensland Transport and Main Roads reveal that the Gold Coast suburb recorded 992 offences, 651 of them were travelling at between 13 and 20 kilometres an hour over the speed limit of 40km/h.

Coomera is sitting just behind Upper Mount Gravatt where 995 drivers were caught breaking the limit.


Close to 12-thousand fines were handed out in school zones across Queensland between September 2015 and February.

Drivers caught doing the wrong thing outside schools face fines of up to $1099, risk losing as many as eight demerit points and could be banned from getting behind the wheel for up to six months.
