Should Guelph lower speed limits?

Complete the online survey by November 30

Guelph, Ont., November 9, 2020 – Whether you drive, walk, bike, ride transit or use a mobility device to travel around Guelph, we want your feedback on speed limits in our city. Take the online survey by November 30 to tell us:

  • How you feel about the possibility for lower speed limits on residential city streets
  • How we can make our streets safer for all travellers
  • How you think speed limits impact travel times and collisions
  • Other ways we can encourage drivers to slow down

We’ll use the information gathered through this survey along with technical considerations, collision data and a municipal best practice review to develop a recommendation for Council’s consideration next year.

This work is part of Guelph’s Community Road Safety Strategy to improve road safety for all road users, regardless of age, ability or how you travel.

Making our streets safer as we travel around Guelph supports the Navigating our future priority in the City’s Strategic Plan by improving the safety, efficiency and connectivity of the whole transportation system. This work also supports the Community Plan by ensuring people feel safe walking, jogging, wheeling, driving and riding their bikes throughout our city.

One thought on “Should Guelph lower speed limits?

  1. The Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation is in favour of the 24 individual strategies that make up the CRSS, said group president Yvette Tendick. In addition to that support, the group would like to see the city conduct a speed limit review, which could see a lowering of the city-wide speed limit from 50 kilometres an hour to 40 or even 30 further down the road.
