Winnipeg speed limit reduction is on the way

Fellow Winnipeggers please don’t text and drive, follow the speed limits, the limits there for a good reason, keep our roads safe and easy to drive. Every driver should pay attention to the traffic lights and the situation on the road.

Winnipeg drivers could one day be forced to slow down on all residential streets. After a month of presentations and debates at city hall, the council is directing city officials to do an analysis of a city-wide speed limit reduction on residential streets.

Most of the Winnipeg speed limits might be revised soon and lowered. The residential speed limit on local streets is currently 50 km unless otherwise posted. Some councillors and advocates say the speed should be 30 km or 40 km. A report is expected back in 90 days.

Let’s all be responsible drivers and care for each other, so at the end of the day, we can all come back home to our loved ones.
