Q: What is “Dusk?”
Q: If playground zones are in effect “dawn till dusk” – how do I know if it’s dusk? Sometimes it is getting dark, but I’m not sure if it’s dusk.
Dusk may be defined as partial darkness between day and night; the dark part of twilight.
Since there’s no sign telling us when exactly it is officially “dusk” we must use judgement. If you aren’t sure, err on the side of caution, or go 40. Consider the consequences of driving 30 km/hr vs. those of driving faster. Consider also the visibility in the playground zone and the presence (or obvious lack thereof) of children.
Think of dusk as “almost dark.”
