Friday marks the beginning of September, which means reduced speed limits in school zones come back into effect in Winnipeg.
From the months of September to June, there is a maximum speed limit of 30 km/h around many schools. This speed limit is in place on Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Drivers are warned to watch for the signs that indicate a reduced-speed school zone. Those caught speeding in these areas could face a fine of at least $200 and move down two levels on the driver safety rating scale.
Reduced-speed school zones are on non-regional streets that border a private or public school which includes Grade 6 or younger, and meets the requirement for signage set out in the Manitoba Reduced-Speed School Zones Regulation.
