Speed Limits Lowered in 77 Neighbourhoods with More to Come
Last Updated on December 8, 2021
City of Mississauga (MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO)
The City has been lowering speed limits in Mississauga neighbourhoods to make residential streets safer for everyone using them. Speed is a contributing factor in approximately one-third of fatal collisions according to the Ontario Traffic Council. Lower speeds are a proven way to reduce the severity of injuries in the event of a collision.
To date, speed limits have been lowered from 50 km/h to 40 km/h in 77 neighbourhoods. More than 130 School Zones have also been lowered from 40 km/h to 30 km/h. Work will continue in 2022 to lower speed limits in even more neighbourhoods across the city.
