The presence of children does not alter the posted speed limit, except when traveling within a 'school zone'.

Speed limits are likely just 20 miles per hour in the school zone starting a short time before, during, and a short time after regular school hours.

You should use common sense when driving in areas where children are present, regardless of a posted speed limit anyway.

You should pay close attention and might want to lower your speed when you are near a public park, during the loading and unloading of school buses, or in neighborhoods with children out playing.
