POTTSBORO, Tex. -- Some Pottsboro parents say they're concerned about the safety of their kids in school zones. They say the speed limit varies through town, which can make driving confusing.

City officials met with TXDOT on Thursday to decide how to make speed limits more consistent in Pottsboro.

Officials they will hand a report over to TXDOT, who will then conduct a traffic study and decide what changes if any need to be made.

"The concern was for the children, and everything in between. The school zone is there, drivers speed up thinking they’re out of the school zone. It's just a bit confusing for the driver," says Pottsboro Police Chief Brett Arterburn.

Officials say that study will cover FM 1417 to about a mile north of Pottsboro on Highway 120.
