School zones on Loch Lomond Road in front of Bayview School and on Union Street in front of Prince Charles School each have a reduced speed limit of 40 KM/H, 7:30 AM until 4:00 PM on school days. All other school zones in the City have speed limits of 50 KM/H, 7:30 AM until 4:00 PM on school days. Reduced speeds allow motorists more time to react to school children crossing a street to or from school and lessens injuries as a result of accidents. Fines are doubled for speeding in a school zone.
