Traffic tips

Consult the Calgary Traffic Tips booklet for the information you need to become a more knowledgeable, safe and confident driver in Calgary.

Speed Limits

  • The standard speed limit on Calgary roads is 50 km/h, unless otherwise posted.
  • The speed limit in alleys is 15 km/h.
  • The speed limit in school and playground zones is 30 km/h during the hours indicated on signs.

In addition to regular enforcement, The City of Calgary uses specialized cameras to enforce speed at several intersections. If a vehicle registered to you is captured on camera travelling through a red light or speeding through a green light, you may receive a traffic fine in the mail.

The City of Calgary launched the Limit Your Speed campaign to increase driver awareness about the importance of following posted speed limits.

Community associations can request the placement of a Speed Limit Warning Sign (SLOWS) trailer in an area where speeding is a concern.
