School Zone Speed Reduction – sections of Union Street and Loch Lomond Road

07-Apr-2015

Motorists are advised of speed limit reductions in two areas. The speed limit on a section each of Loch Lomond Road and Union Street have been reduced to 40 KM/H on school days, from 7:30 AM until 4:00 PM.  The affected section of each street is identified by speed limit and school zone signs and are in proximity to Bayview School and Prince Charles School, respectively.
 
These speed calming measures are part of the City’s Safer School Zone Program.  Reduced speeds allow motorists more time to react to school children crossing a street to or from school and lessens injuries as a result of accidents.
 
These two School Zones are the first in the City to receive a reduced speed limit for school days and times.
 
Motorists are asked to obey speed limits in School Zones to help promote the safety of school children.  Fines are doubled for speeding in a School Zone.
