Yes, school zone speed limits are still in effect

Article content

Although school has been out since late March, school zones in Saskatoon remain in effect.

The posted speed limit of 30 kilometres per hour from Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. will remain in effect until the end of June.

According to the City of Saskatoon, it has no plans to remove school zones before June 30.

Although enforcement of school zone speed limits is a lower priority than it was before the pandemic and the closure of schools, a police spokeswoman said officers may issue tickets at their discretion if they feel there is a risk to the public’s safety.

Police are encouraging drivers to abide by the school zone speed limits.
