JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A potentially dangerous issue near Central Riverside Elementary School is now resolved thanks to a viewer who alerted First Coast News.
Allen Dunn, a Riverside resident, e-mailed us about a palm tree that had overgrown to the point it was covering a school zone speed limit sign.
"Oh, it's more than hidden. It's completely covered. I mean, it really took me searching to find the sign," Dunn said.
The sign sits on city property in the 2500 block of Ernest Street and requires drivers to go 15 miles per hour between 7:45 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. and 2:30 and 3:30 p.m.
The lower speed limit is a safety precaution because those are times of day when children might be present.
But Dunn's e-mail pointed out that palm leaves from the tree almost completely concealed the sign to oncoming drivers.
His concern is they would not know they were in a school zone.
