It may be summer, but those flashing yellow school zone signs aren't a mirage or a mistake. Hundreds of kids are attending summer programs at various Pasco County School District campuses on Mondays through Thursdays, so some school zones are still active. Drivers are required by law to slow down to the posted speed when the yellow lights are flashing. And remember, speeding fines are doubled in school zones.
