If a driver is traveling south on N 22nd or N 23rd Street and is turning onto Reynolds, there is no flashing sign indicating that they are entering an active school zone. The same applies for other locations around other schools. Why aren't there flashing signs on collector streets within school zones?


"Standard procedure across the United States calls for the installation of school zone flashers at the entrance of a school zone. Intermediate postings are relatively short in distance. One improvement could be made by installing a flashing yellow signal on the reverse side of the school flasher assembly; this notifies drivers and patrolling officers that the school flashers are on and operational. The city will explore this option further for possible implementation."

Ask the City Of Laramie is your chance to send the city that burning question that you have always wondered about such as: “Where can I get a city parking permit?” or “Why did my water usage rates go through the roof?”

Please note that the City of Laramie will answer as many questions as possible at their discretion.
