The school zones around former Mt. Begbie and Mountain View elementary schools are now playgound zones with a 30 km/h speed limit.

Drivers: School zones now playground zones

Drivers will still have to hit the brakes when they travel past the former Mt. Begbie and Mountain View elementary schools

Drivers will still have to hit the brakes when they travel past the former Mt. Begbie and Mountain View elementary schools.

The former school zones have now been declared playground zones, which means a 30 kilometres per hour maximum speed from dawn until dusk. The change was announced by the City of Revelstoke on August 2.

City workers replaced the school zone signs with new playground signs on August 1.

The change means more restrictions than before; the school zone speed limit of 30 kilometres per hour was in effect only on school days between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The new playground zone limit is in effect from dusk to dawn all year round.

The two schools closed at the end of the 2012 school year. Students will attend the brand new Begbie View Elementary School when it opens for the 2012/13 school season.
