School may be out, but school and playground zones are still in effect. The Town of High River, in conjunction with the High River RCMP detachment, is kindly reminding everyone that School and Playground zones run year-round.
Reduced speeds in all playground and school zones begin daily at 7:30 a.m. and run until one hour after sunset.
During the Summer months, while kids are out of school, we see an increase in the use of these spaces, and adherence to the posted speeds keeps everyone safe. Pedestrians in these areas should be vigilant, watch for traffic while crossing and use marked crosswalks.
