SASKATOON, Sask. — City councillors have bowed to public pressure and implemented a 30 km-h speed limit in school zones throughout the city.

The decision comes one month after a young boy was killed by a vehicle on his way to school.

City council was hesitant to react, but angry citizens insisted on the speed reduction presenting council with a petition carrying more than 1,000 signatures.

Traffic calming measures will also be used to slow city traffic beginning next year. Implementing the slow-down zones will cost over $600,000, but exactly how much is spent will be up for debate at the budget meetings in December.
