Residential Speed Limit Reduction Questions

At today’s public hearing, the bylaw to reduce default residential speed limit to 40 km/h passed second and third readings. Council voted 9-3 to approve. We anticipate implementation and signage by summer 2021, at a cost of $1.1 million from the Traffic Safety Automated Enforcement Reserve.

This decision is in line with the Vision Zero Safe Mobility Strategy to reduce the frequency and severity of traffic-related injuries. More information about speed limit reduction and Vision Zero is available on the City website:Β
