Oi! Playground Zones Popping Up!

Hey Edmonton! This is just a friendly reminder that more and more “Playground Zones” and their signs are going up.

I know we’re all used to the school zones, but now these school zones are now playground zones, which means from 7:30am to 9:00pm, even on non-school days, the speed limit is 30.

There are areas that also dont seem like they should be “playground” zones, like open fields- but the signs are up!
I’ve had a few minor incidents of annoyed people behind me thinking I’m just driving slow for no reason- but I’m just following the signs!

I’m sure it’s not going through our heads because it’s new and we’re not used to the new rules yet. Just something to be aware of!

    Big pet peeve in my area.Our School has a 30km school zone until 4:30pm only, AND they have a playground on site. I support that, don’t get me wrong. 5 blocks away we have an empty field that has no one in the winter, some soccer in the summer. They now have this bullshit 30km around the entire field till 9pm! No one uses the god damn field in the winter. Here’s an idea. The city should ticket every jay-walker $500 first offense and $1000 for every repeat offence. Nobody uses the designated crosswalks around said field, especially during the summer soccer season. So again we get inconvenienced for everybody’s total disregard for common sense and safety. Teach your children how to navigate the world safely. It’s not hard. Take the 5 extra minutes and use the crosswalks to load junior into the family SUV instead of teaching them to weave in and out of parked cars against traffic.

    Email your city councillor and let him/her know how utterly useless it is. It worked in my neighborhood. Enough people need to complain.

  5. I’ve had people annoyed and honking at me numerous times. It’s frustrating.

  6. I’ve been waiting for my post since Saturday. Also this is not the first post I’ve made and you never post them! They are not offensive so I’m not sure why they are ignored.

    Thanks for the post OP. I for one didn’t know/wasn’t aware of that.

  8. All about the revenue.
