The Flower Mound Town Council recently approved an ordinance banning the use of handheld cellular telephones in active school zones. The ordinance promotes safety for the Town’s school-aged children, parents, and staff while in school zones with minimal inconvenience for drivers. Beginning March 25, a grace period of ten school days will begin to allow drivers to become accustomed to the ordinance. Enforcement will start on Tuesday, April 8. During the grace period, police officers will issue warnings for violations except for aggravated or repeat offenses. To help make motorists aware of the new ordinance, the Town is installing signs prior to students’ return from spring break. For more information, call 972.539.0525.
