City still putting finishing touches on some school zones – Winnipeg

WINNIPEG – Some of the city’s new reduced-speed school zones don’t yet meet all the requirements laid down by provincial legislation. But police say they’ve only been issuing tickets to speeders in zones where all the t’s have been crossed and i’s dotted.

Officials said Tuesday they are still in the process of documenting the details of the new 30 km/hr school zones around 171 Winnipeg schools.

“Provincial regulation requires that municipalities include dimensional information in their by-laws to document the installed location of each sign,” says city manager of transportation Luis Escobar in a statement.

Police say they will continue conducting enforcement in all school zones including those still waiting to be documented but it is “unlikely officers will issue a ticket in those zones at this time unless the speed is excessive,” police Det. Sgt. Natalie Aitken told Global News.

Police say the tickets handed out to school zone speeders so far this month were in zones that meet all the regulations.

“Since the start of September the WPS has issued tickets to drivers speeding in the school zone speed reduction areas,” Winnipeg Police say in a statement issued by their Public Information Office Tuesday. “however those tickets that were issued were not in areas where the City of Winnipeg is still in the process of finalizing the documentation of locations for inclusion in the City by-law.”

Officials say all the school zone and speed limit signs are placed correctly, contradicting a report earlier Tuesday.
