The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is reminding drivers that school speed zones are back in effect as of today (June 1), due to the partial reopening of schools.

The school zone speed limit is 30 km/h between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on days school is in session.

“We remind drivers to be aware of children going to and from school, and to take extra precautions to ensure the safety of the students,” says APD Sgt. Judy Bird.

Playground zones remain in effect, as they have throughout the pandemic. The playground zone speed limit is 30 km/h from dawn to dusk.
