“No matter how safe vehicles, roads and drivers are, all of these things will fail beyond certain speeds.” (Love 30 Canada)
Municipalities around the world are reducing the speeds of motorized traffic, particularly on roads where vehicles and people mix. Research shows both the probability of a collision and the probability of fatal collisions increase as speeds increase. On the flip-side, lower speeds make communities more walk- and bike-friendly. For example, roads become safer for children walking and biking to school.
Starting August 1st 2017, speed limits in designated areas around Parry Sound schools will be reduced. PSAAT heartily supports this initiative. To read more about why lower speeds are becoming more common, visit:
