Remember School Zone Safety Rules
With the school year fast approaching, the City of Regina and Regina Police Service remind residents to follow school zone safety to ensure every child makes it to school safely.
“We’re going to see a lot more children gathering at schools very soon. They may be excited to see their friends and could be distracted, so take the proper precautions from behind the wheel while children are present. Taking that bit of extra time to slow down in school zones can go a long way to ensure safety,” shared Chief Evan Bray of the Regina Police Services.
Residents are reminded when in school zones please slow down to a maximum 30 km/h, as indicated by signage. The speed limit is in effect from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week, year-round.
Make sure to not park, drop off, or wait to pick up a child in a no parking or no stopping zone. These zones help to ensure clear sightlines for drivers and students. To help avoid car congestion, watch for drop off signage near schools or drop off a block away and let children walk the rest of the way, as communicated by the Regina Catholic School Board and Regina Public School Board.
Please remind children to maintain physical distancing when they walk, bike, run and stride over to school.
Let’s all work together to reduce congestion around the schools and ensure our children remain safe.
