ORANGE East Public School has the worst school zone warning signs in the city according to NRMA.
The NRMA’s Keep School Zones Safe survey received more than 900 responses about the condition of school zone signs at 537 schools in NSW.
In Orange three schools had inadequate signage - Orange East Public School, Canobolas Public School and Glenroi Heights Public School.
Orange East failed in six of eight categories including not having flashing warning lights, a faded zebra crossing and no crossing supervisor.
As well as the faded zebra crossing, the school also has faded 40 km/h square patches.
Canobolas Public School has a faded school zone sign and both Canobolas and Glenroi do not have a crossing supervisor.
A P&C committee member for Orange East agrees with the NRMA that the lack of adequate signage has been an issue for parents.
NRMA director for motoring and services in the western region Graham Blight said Orange schools were not worse than the rest of the state.
The survey found 40 per cent of schools in NSW and the ACT have faded signs that are hard to see but Mr Blight said there was no excuse and no reason why motorists would be caught speeding in 40 km/h school zones.
“The signs aren’t that bad that people shouldn’t miss them,” he said.
“The issue is people should be able to see them from a further distance.”
From July to September, 73 drivers have been booked speeding in Orange school zones, contributing about $16,469 dollars to the Office of State Revenue.
