Community Safety Zones

Community Safety Zones are areas with lots of pedestrians, typically near schools, that have posted signs to reinforce safe and careful driving. Even though the rules of the road stay the same, the fines for breaking them are twice as much in these zones to encourage drivers to use caution and stay at or below the speed limit.

Community safety zones  

Community Safety Zones have been created at schools across the city. The automated speed enforcement program operates in Community Safety Zones to encourage reduced speeds in school areas, where families may be walking or cycling to school.

Neighbourhood area speed limits

All roads in neighbourhoods with Area Speed Limits have a speed limit of 40 km/h unless otherwise posted. Signs that read 'AREA BEGINS' or ' AREA ENDS' are located at all entry and exit points to the neighbourhood.  The speed limits on the main roads  bordering a neighbourhood area are not impacted.

The City of Kingston acknowledges that we are on the traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat, and thanks these nations for their care and stewardship over this shared land.

Today, the City is committed to working with Indigenous peoples and all residents to pursue a united path of reconciliation.
