Speed Zones

With school being out this week, many motorist presume that the school zones are no longer in effect. In many communities, included Golden, the school zone is not just 30 kph during school hours.

“Golden has many 30 kph zones around the town which are regulatory signs, meaning they are in effect 24 hrs a day,”said Sgt. Betty Watson. “These areas include but are not limited to 9th Ave around Lady Grey, the Alternate School, the Golden Rec plex, pool, municipal campground and Selkirk hill.”

Motorist are reminded that a regulatory sign is black number/lettering on a white background and unless specified, is in effect 24 hrs. Summer brings out pedestrians and cyclists alike and many more children. Take your time getting around and slow down and let’s keep our community and kids safe.
