School and playground zones set to change in Red Deer

New times take effect Aug. 1st

Red Deer school and playground zones have begun to follow new times as of Aug. 1st.

The City changed the effective times of school and playground zones to make them easier to remember.

As of Aug. 1st, school zones will be in effect from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on school days while playground zones will be in effect from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.

Combinations zones (marked as both school and playground zones) will be converted to playground zones.

To make the changes easier for drivers, all signs will be equipped with a time tab noting the effective times of that zone. The speed limit in school and playground zones will continue to be 30 km/hr during effective hours. Signs will be updated around the City starting Aug. 1st.

More information is available at www.reddeer.ca/go30.
