Watch your speed! Police ticketing more school zone speeders

TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- If you drive with a lead foot, you'll want to watch your speed through local school zones.

So far this school year, the number of school zone tickets spiked in both Richland and Kennewick.

Compared to the school year ending in 2012, more than 500 additional tickets have been given out.

In Pasco they're down slightly.

A ticket for speeding through a school zone is double a normal ticket.

Kennewick Police say no individual school zones have been targeted.

Meantime, Richland tells us they've amped up patrols on Wellsian Way.
