Stettler RCMP - With the beginning of the new school year, the Stettler RCMP would like to remind motorists of the requirement to obey School Zone signs, the times those are in effect and the differences between those and Playground Zones.

School Zones
  • In effect on school days only
  • During the following hours 8am - 9:30am / 11:30am - 1:30pm / 3pm - 4:30pm
  • A municipality may change the hours of school zones, however those alternate hours are required to be posted with the sign
  • Speed limit during hours of enforcement is 30km/hr

Playground Zones
  • In effect every day
  • During the hours of 8:30am - one hour after sunset
  • A municipality may establish 'set hours' for their playground zones, however they must be posted with the sign
  • Speed limit during hours of enforcement is 30km/hr
  • Stettler Detachment offers free cards outlining the differences of the two zones that can be kept with your vehicle as a reminder.
