Community Safety Zone signs signal to motorists travelling within the zone that under the Highway Traffic Act, fines for speeding or related offenses are doubled. Community Safety Zones are sections of roadway where public safety is of special concern. Community Safety Zones may include roadways near schools, day care centres, playgrounds, parks, hospitals and senior citizen residences. They may also be used for collision prone areas within a community.
