The start of September brought back the school zone speed limit bylaw. Drivers will have to reduce their speeds from 50 kilometres an hour, to 30 kilometres per hour between the hours of 8:00am-5:00pm. The speed limit will be 30 kilometres Monday to Friday until the end of the school year in June.
The Thompson RCMP will be out patrolling the area, and the one traffic enforcer member will be paying extra close attention to the school zones says Will Tewnion with the RCMP.
If a motorist is caught speeding, say 20 kilometres over the limit a fine of $312.25 can be issued, as well as demerit points will be taken away by Manitoba Public Insurance.
