riding safe during school hours
Vacay’s over, school is back! This means that roads and school areas may be busier than usual. When riding near schools it’s important to pay extra attention.
While speed limits are the maximum speed allowed, drivers should drive the appropriate speed limits depending on the conditions.
The speed limit when riding near schools*.
40km (when the original speed limit is less than 80km)
60km (when the original speed limit is 80km or higher)
These speed limits are enforces outside of school and on route to schools, there will also be signs. By having these speed limits it reduces the chances of accidents.
