School zone speed limits suspended as classes cancelled for coronavirus – Winnipeg


Winnipeg police are suspending the 30 km/h reduced speed limit in school zones while classes remain cancelled and schools are closed.

Const. Jay Murray told Global News the decision is a reflection of social distancing practices during the coronavirus pandemic, and that it’s unlikely for children to be playing in school zones while families are practising self-isolation.

“This circumstance is different than anything else we have experienced before,” Murray said.

Other forms of photo enforcement, he said, will continue.
