REMINDER: Changes to school and playground zones take effect September 1, 2022

For immediate release: June 29, 2022 - 3:18pm
TC22-3240

With elementary and high school classes wrapping up this week for the school year, the City is reminding people that reduced speeds in school zones will be in effect 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., 7 days a week, when school resumes in the Fall.

The changes to effective dates and times for the 30 km/h speed limit in school zones, the introduction of new playground reduced speed zones, and removal of school zones around high schools will take effect September 1, 2022.

Throughout the summer, City crews will be installing new playground signs and revising signs near schools.

As signs are installed, drivers are encouraged to follow the new direction; however, enforcement will only begin after the September 1, 2022 effective date.

Currently, school zones are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday from September 1 to June 30.

The City thanks everyone for their cooperation and attention in these areas where young children are playing and learning. More details are available at saskatoon.ca/speedlimit.
