Hundreds of people were ticketed in school zones in this Winnipeg area
A new report by the Winnipeg Public Service found that more than 500 tickets were issued for driving infractions in school zones in the East Kildonan – Transcona area between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018.
The goal of the report was to look at reduced school speed zones (RSSZ) in Winnipeg in order to understand how they can be more effective.
