School Zone signs
Starting Sept. 1 school and playground zones will be in effect 12 hours a day, and will continue to be enforced throughout the summer next year.

SASKATOON — Starting Sept. 1, school and new playground zones with maximum 30 km/h signs will change to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week. 

This is also the last summer that school zones won’t be in effect. 

According to the city, some school and playground signs do not include a posted speed limit, such as around high schools and certain play areas. Drivers should treat the sign as a caution and pay close attention through this area.  

U-turns are not permitted in school zones around elementary or high schools.  

The new times will be shown on signs marking school and playground zones by the end of August and you can read more at
