This week, a Queens Park committee discussed Bill 65, known as the Safer School Zones Act. If passed, the Bill would grant municipalities discretion to use photo radar and other automated speed enforcement tools in school zones and designated community safety zones. It would also allow municipalities to lower speed limits below 50km/hour in specific areas. The Bill has passed two readings so far, and needs to pass one more to become law.
Bike Ottawa supports Bill 65 and wrote a letter to the Standing Committee reviewing it to express this support: read the full letter below.
