Wednesday, September 1st is the first day back to school for many students in Saskatoon.
The Saskatoon Police Traffic Unit would like to take this opportunity to remind motorists that school zone rules are back in effect Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM. School zones are in effect until the end of June.
3 simple rules for safer school zones:
- Slow to 30 km/h
- Do not make a u-turn within a school zone
- Obey parking restrictions around schools
SGI provides some examples of possible tickets that could occur in school zones:
If a vehicle was going 45 km/h in a 30 km/h school zone, the fine would be $290.
If a vehicle was going 81 km/h in a 30 km/h school zone, the fine would be $809.
