New app keeping kids safe and reducing speeding fines for drivers

A NEW app is keeping kids safe by helping drivers stick to speed limits in school zones.

The School Zone 40 app, created by Gold Coast couple Steve and Stacy Beckton, notifies users with an audible alert when they are approaching a school zone.

Users will also receive an audible alert if they are exceeding the speed limit within the speed zone.


The app is programmed to work during School Zone hours only, with individual school and state times already programmed in as well as public and school holidays.

The app works for all Gold Coast school zones, with plans to expand it to work across Australia. For more information on the School Zone 40 app, visit:
