(not positive on the exact times or whether the sign was bilingual, I didn't get a good enough of a look at it)
My question is how this is supposed to be interpreted? I could see it logically meaning 3 different things:
1) It is only a community safety zone (fines doubled) during those hours.
2) It is only a 40km/h zone during those hours and always a community safety zone.
3) It is always a community safety zone and always 40km/h those times are just when kids are most likely to be in the area.
Anybody have some insight as to what exactly this sign is trying to tell me? I figure the safest bet is to assume #3 as I will end up with less tickets making this assumption but I'd like to know what it actually means.
Email whoever makes your local bylaws and they should be able to tell you what's going on.
Community safety zones are in effect during certain hours, days and months of the year. The by-law will state when. The sign goes up but won't state the times. Just because there is a sign doesn't mean it's a 24/7 thing.
Finally who goes to school for 2 hours in the morning and two in the afternoon? It's most likely the daycare drop off hours that allow special parking/stopping.
Arrival and exit times from school. Those are probably the times when the "lights" are flashing........School Days
