More than half of all motorists caught driving illegally in ACT school zones this year were almost 30km/h over the speed limit.
And the majority of them were near Radford College.
Police say they have fined 25 drivers for school-zone related offences in the first two weeks of 2020.
Of those, 17 drivers were found speeding between 15 and 30km/h over the school zone limit, which is 40km/h.
Between February 3 and 14, two more drivers were found speeding up to 15km/h over the limit, while three were caught driving in a bike lane and one was caught driving in a bus lane illegally.
Police said another driver had been fined for driving without a license.
A further two people had been cautioned for speeding in school zones.
While police said they were disappointed with the number of drivers caught speeding in school zones, the number was down on previous years.
Almost 60 drivers had been caught speeding in the first week of school in 2018.
College Street in Bruce near Radford College was the biggest hot spot for drivers being booked for school-zone offences. Seventeen infringements were handed out there. No other street had more than two.
Unlike nearby states where school zones operate only in mornings and afternoons, ACT school zones are in effect for the whole school day, between 8am and 4pm.
Drivers caught speeding in school zones face fines of $279 and one demerit point, up to $2136 and six demerit points.
Acting station sergeant Jayde O'Donnell said drivers needed to be more aware on the roads, particularly in school zones.
"School zones are to ensure the safety of our children when they're heading to and from school and in school hours," she said.
"We ask Canberrans to be more situationally aware and create space and to expect the unexpected when driving in school zones."
Since the beginning of the year, ACT police have issued more than 600 traffic infringements.
Acting station sergeant O'Donnell said officers were targeting drivers in school zones throughout February as part of road safety strategies.
"Driver behaviour is paramount to ensure the safety of children in school zones," she said.
"We urge for Canberra drivers to be more responsible and to take extra time when driving in these areas."
