Why the Speed Limit Change Matters
Speed limits are set to achieve a uniform speed for all motorists and here’s why the speed limit change matters. Limits within the city are set & maintained by the City’s Engineering department and enforced by the RCMP. Playground and School Zone limits just got easier to remember! Effective August 1 2017, the City of Red Deer has made changes to School Zones, Playground Zones and Combo Zones.
Starting August 1st:
- All school zones in Red Deer will be a 30km/hr speed limit from 8am-4:30pm on school days.
- All playground zones in Red Deer will be a 30km/hr speed limit from 8am – 9pm everyday.
- All combo zones (both school and playground) will now be treated as playground zones.
