We aren’t alone! It’s confusing!
I received this tweet today from the City of Port Moody ..
Thanks City of Port Moody for your reply!
I have a coupe of questions about the speed limit on Noons Creek Dr in Port Moody/Coquitlam between Maude Ct and Honeysuckle Ln, when school is not in session.
I’ve attached two pdf files here to help with my explanation. Northbound is heading uphill from Maude Ct, and Southbound is heading downhill from Honeysuckle Ln. In each pdf, the speed limit sign images are listed in order.
1. Heading northbound, the speed limit is initially 50 km/h. The first image shows a sign stating that the speed limit will be reduced to 30 km/h ahead. The second image shows a school zone sign with a 30 km/h speed limit sign below. The third image shows the back of a school zone sign on the other side of the road, indicating the end of the school zone. Finally, the fourth image shows a 30 km/h regulatory speed limit sign. I wonder, if school was not in session, would the maximum speed allowed be 50 km/h until the location of the fourth image?
2. Heading southbound, the speed limit is, again, 50 km/h initially. The first image shows a 30 km/h regulatory speed limit sign. The second image also shows a 30 km/h regulatory sign. Then the third image shows a 30 km/h school zone sign. Finally, the fourth image shows the back of the school zone sign on the other side of the street. A few blocks ahead, there is a 50 km/h regulatory sign. (Not shown in the pdf) If school was not in session, would the maximum speed allowed be 30 km/h from the location of the first image to the 50 km/h sign? Or would it be 30 km/h until the location of the third image and 50 km/h from that point onwards? (Related to the northbound question above)
Here it is not too far up the road:
Do you agree? Let me know.
By the way, if anyone has survived this article all the way down to here and is wondering what a Chevron sign is, it’s these things of course:
Please Drive Safely.
This is Noons Creek Drive in Port Moody. Say you are driving here on Sunday (or when school is not in session). Do you think this signage is confusing at all? Or are you confident you know for sure whether the speed limit is 30 km/hr or 50 km/hr on all parts of this section of road? Just wondering… (Please check out 47 second video below).
