Why doesn’t the school-zone time on 132 synch up with Wrightsboro Elementary’s actual start bell?

Q. Why is the starting time for the Wrightsboro Elementary school zone set to start 15-20 minutes after students begin crossing N.C. 132 and continue 45 minutes past the school bell? The safety of the children should be a priority of the NHC School Board. Thanks for investigating.

A. School zone times often change after signs and flashing lights are installed, said Jessi Booker, assistant traffic engineer with the N.C. Department of Transportation.

To tell the DOT about an incorrect sign, Booker said residents can call assistant traffic engineer George Eckart, who deals with signs and pavement markings, as well as school zone requests, at 341-2000.


Who is responsible for enforcing drop-off and pick-up procedures at the public schools?

How do DOT or the school board plan on improving the horrible traffic problems at Laney High School?
