No I believe it is not in effect. All though you should watch out in some areas that are school/playzones... I've seen it in the past where the city will actually change the school zone signs to park zone signs for spring break and summer vacation.

Just thought I'd give you the heads up.

use posted limits. if you're by a school where there's a jungle gym, go 30. they'll say that kids could be on there and that = same danger with school in session.

Just go 30? Does that extra 5 seconds it takes to get through a zone mean that much?

School zone speed limits are only in effect on school days.
Spring break = no school = normal speed limit apply

as title says..
If this is for your road test, just ask before you go out. I did. Turns out if school's out, limit is as it was before you reached the school zone area. Playgrounds still in effect. If this is a repeat of what someone else already said... too bad, I'm too lazy to read all the posts. :p Prolly will now tho :D.

EDIT: My buddy's test is tomorrow too. GL on yer test! Hope the weather stays dry for ya!

But the posted limit of 50km is the Maximum, so what is the Minimim before you"ll get points deducted? :surrender

like what's already said, in a school zone that has a posted limit of 30km/h, it's only good when school is in session between 9-5pm I think. If you go 30 km/h when there's no school you'd get dinged for it. I was asked why I was going so slow going through a school zone, when schools out... so, don't go too much over 50 km/h but definitely faster than 30 km/h in a school zone.

In reality, there is no right answer. You may/may not get cited for not following school zone limit right now.

I choose to err on caution, I mean, do PRO D days count as non-school days? Who keeps track of this? (not me).

Putting the "brakes" on speeding this Spring Break
With school out for spring break, children are outside playing in parks and playgrounds. Children are unpredictable. Always be alert and be extra cautious when driving in areas where children may be present. If you see a ball bounce on the road, chances are a child will be close behind.

Remember the speed rules in school and playground zones.

The speed limit in playground zones is in effect dawn to dusk, every day of the year. When driving through a playground zone, drivers must slow down to 30 km/h.
When school is back in session the 30 km/h speed limit in school zones is in effect from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on days when students are in class.

40

if in doubt do 40 on the test.. that way you're 10 away from 30 or 50
but for the test, just reaffirm with your tester: "i just wanted to confirm with you that since it's spring break, school zones are not in affect however playground zones are" the testers are more than happy to "confirm" this with you
