Speeding through school

Jason Kerr/Daily Herald

Ward 8 Coun. Ted Zurakowski said he’s concerned about the amount of speeding in Prince Albert’s school zones, and wants to see proposals brought forward that will curb the problem.

Zurakowski made the comments after the February bylaw report was presented at Monday’s executive committee meeting.

The report shows that three of the nine speeding tickets issues in the month of February came in school zones, which the city councillors said is way too high.

“This yet again is another bylaw report where we’re seeing, month after month, when it comes to traffic, the speeding that’s going on in school zones throughout our city. We’ve seen this now for a number of months, a number of years.”

In the past, the City of Prince Albert has sought to curb speeding through the use of traffic calming devices like raised crosswalks, which force drivers to slow down.
