Motorists Reminded of School Zones

With the school year starting shortly, the RCMP would like to take a moment to remind motorists about school zones and outline the difference between those and playground zones.
School Zones:
  • In effect on school days only
  • Times the speed limit is 30km/hr – 8:00am – 9:30am ; 11:am – 1:30pm ; 3:00pm – 4:30pm
  • A municipality may change the times noted above, but if they do so, the times must accompany the sign
  • Vehicles are not permitted to pass other vehicles travelling in the same direction when the school zone is in effect
Playground Zones:
  • In effect every day from 8:30 am until 1 hr after sunset
  • Times may vary depending on the municipality, but alternate times must accompany the sign
  • Vehicles are not permitted to pass other vehicles travelling in the same direction when the school zone is in effect
