The City of Winnipeg has an opportunity to set new default speed limits. New provincial law has made speed limits the responsibility of municipalities. The City of Winnipeg has a new opportunity to set a city-wide speed limit that supports safe, healthy, thriving communities.
30km/h is the only safe speed where people share the road with vehicles. Let’s set a new speed limit for Winnipeg that prioritizes people’s safety and mobility over cars.
