Viewers warned our "In the Zone" team about speeders near Maize Middle School. But we were still stunned by what we saw this week along Maize Road. We counted at least half a dozen cars that were going 10 miles an hour, or more, above the speed limit in the school zone.
"It's like this every day," said Lt. Craig Brasser of the Maize Police Department. Brasser told us an officer is assigned to monitor speeds at Maize Middle School Monday through Friday. On this particular morning, we saw an officer stop three drivers for speeding. We even saw drivers speeding by the officer as he issued tickets.
"It's frustrating. We sometimes look like the bad guys because we're out here writing tickets and people are trying to get to school or get to work," said Brasser.
