School and playground zone times set to change August 1

July 31, 2017 11:12 AM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

Red Deer school and playground zones will follow new times starting August 1, 2017.

The City is changing the effective times of school and playground zones to make them easier to remember. The following changes will come into effect August 1:

  • School zones will be in effect from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on school days
  • 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/h during effective hours. Signs will be updated around the city starting August 1.
