With the new school year starting soon, I wanted to take a moment to remind community residents that school and playground zone hours have changed.
Both school and playground zones begin at 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. School zone hours are in effect on school days (make sure you take note of whether a school is in session year-round), whereas playground zones are in effect 365 days a year. During these hours, the speed limit is reduced to 30 km/h.
You may have noticed that the Transportation Department and Calgary Police have been focussing their efforts to educate Calgarians about these changes this summer, while signs are being updated with the new times. The Calgary Police will start enforcing the new times on September 1, 2014.
