As the children return to school after their Holiday break, please ensure that you use extra caution while travelling through the school and playground zones on the island. The posted speed limits from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. are 30km/h, and exceeding that speed limit could result in a fine of up to $253. The wet and dark weather can make it difficult to see, so please slow down and take your time. Happy New Year!
