Question about Playground/School Speed Restriction “When Children on Highway” Road Sign


When children on highway


Q: I have a question about the playground zone speed limitation. Once I was driving around a playground in maple ridge, and the sign says “30km/h when children on highway”. I could see children playing inside the playground, but there’re nobody actually on the road or the shoulder, so should I drive at 30 or 50 ? Thanks!



Black and white signs



According to the motor vehicle act HERE

Was it a black and white (regulation, i.e. not optional) speed tab sign like this, attached to a playground sign? You only ‘have to’ slow down to the posted speed when the child/children are on the road or shoulder in this case.
