This is a friendly reminder for those who are in Winnipeg to avoid the fine of approximately $300 for speeding through school zones.
Starting September 1, the maximum speed limits of 30 km/h around many Winnipeg schools are in effect from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. This will last until the month of June.
Reduced-speed school zones apply to any street that:
- borders a private or public school which includes grade six or lower,
- is not a regional street and
- meets the requirements for signage set out in the Manitoba Reduced-Speed School Zones Regulation.
Watch for the following signs that denote a reduced-speed school zone:
Reduced speed ahead sign
Beginning of reduced-speed school zone sign
End of reduced-speed school zone sign
If you are in other cities of Canada and with different speed limit school zone regulations, please share it below. Thank you.
