Passed    Motion To: Whereas the Roadway and Traffic Environment Criteria includes criteria whereby a 30 km/h speed limit will only be considered if the transit service is infrequent (three trips per hour per direction or fewer) and that the roadway has traffic volumes of less than 2500 vehicles per day Whereas there may be residential roads on which schools are located which have more than three transit trips per hour per direction or have more than 2500 vehicles per day that travel on the road WHEREAS there may be a desire for the community to have the speed limit on these residential roadways in front of the schools lowered to 30 km/h; and THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT Criteria 2 of the Roadway and Traffic Environment Criteria reading: Transit Operations: For roads with transit service, a 30 km/h speed limit will only be considered if the service is infrequent (three trips per hour per direction or fewer) or if the road already operates at 30 km/h or more slowly during daytime hours (generally 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday). Be amended to read: Transit Operations: For roads with transit service, a 30 km/h speed limit will only be considered if the service is infrequent (3 trips per hour per direction or fewer), if the road already operates at 30 km/h or more slowly during daytime hours (generally 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday to Saturday), or if the road is a local or collector road at the main pedestrian entrance to a school; and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Criteria 5 of the Roadway and Traffic Environment Criteria reading: Daily Traffic Volume: The Transportation Association of Canada’s Geometric Design Guide identifies 2,500 vehicles per day as the upper threshold for local roadways. As the intent of the 30 km/h Speed Limit Policy is to provide lower speed limits on roadways that serve the local roadway function, a 30 km/h speed limit will only be considered on roadways with traffic volumes of less than 2,500 vehicles per day. Be amended to read: Daily Traffic Volume: The Transportation Association of Canada’s Geometric Design Guide identifies 2,500 vehicles per day as the upper threshold for local roadways. As the intent of the 30 km/h Speed Limit Policy is to provide lower speed limits on roadways that serve the local roadway function, a 30 km/h speed limit will only be considered on roadways with traffic volumes of less than 2,500 vehicles per day or on roadways where traffic volumes are higher than 2500 vehicles per day and there is a school present whereby in these cases, a school speed zone of 30 km/h could be implemented during the times when children are arriving to school in the morning or leaving school in the afternoon.
