On July 22, 2014 City Council approved changes to school and playground zone timing in Calgary.
Effective September 1, 2014 playground zones are now in effect from 7:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. everyday, and school zones are in effect from 7:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., on school days only.
The Calgary Police Service have been focusing on educating drivers about the change throughout the month of August and City Roads crews have been busy changing the times on almost 5,000 school and playground zone signs around the city. The Calgary Police Service will start enforcing the new school and playground zones hours on Monday, September 1.
Setting straight forward and consistent playground and school zone hours will improve safety for both pedestrians and motorists.
