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.

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