MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Everyone knows it is important to slow down in school zones, but some drivers just do not do it.  

It has been about one week since many school districts in Southern Arizona have begun classes and that means a routine shakeup for everyone, including those who do not have kids. 

Marana Unified School District began classes last Monday, August 4 and since then Marana Police Department has made a total of 131 traffic stops.  

Speeding was the most common violation, with 92 citations issued. MPD officials are saying there was one extreme DUI arrest. Other violations MPD cited were passing in a school zone, and failure to stop at a crosswalk.  The majority of the citations were issued along Silverbell Road near Marana High School, as well as of in front of Marana Middle School


A spokesperson with Marana Police said that 2014 stats are significantly higher than 2013, mainly because they had more officers assigned to school zones.  
A reminder to all drivers, leave early so not in a rush and are tempted to speed.
