According to ICBC, 7,900 drivers were ticketed for speeding in school and playground zones across BC in 2017.
ICBC is asking drivers to give themselves extra travel time so they aren’t rushing and more likely to speed. Drivers should be completely focused on the road and be watching for children, especially in or around school zones.
