Coeur d’Alene police Officer Nick Knoll parked across the street from Lakes Middle School and lowered the front windows of his patrol car, looking for lead-footed drivers. Knoll pointed a laser detector at passing cars to get an instant read on their speeds. It didn’t take long. “Here we go, there’s a 35” – a driver going 15 miles over the school zone speed limit as students are arriving at the school. Knoll pulled over a woman with a kid in her car, chatted with her briefly and returned to scan her driver’s license into his computer and print out a $156.50 speeding ticket. “She thought the speed limit was a 25 mph school zone,” Knoll said. “And she’s running late today”/Scott Maben, SR.
