This Spring, Council made a decision that says, when you drive in Guelph, you slow down near an elementary school – any elementary school. We lowered the speed limit in elementary school zones to 30 km/h on local roads at all times, and 40 km/h on arterial roads on school days from 8-9 a.m. and 3-4 p.m.
Why? Our community cares about the safety of our children. We want to make it easier and safer for children to walk to school. This change supports and reflects those values.
You may have noticed the new signs cropping up around the city. The speed limits are enforced as soon as the signs are installed.
