Town-wide speed limit to be set at 30km/hour
Banff Town Council has approved a bylaw that sets the maximum speed limit at 30km/h on all roads in town. Skateboards and roller skates are now approved for use on all roads in the town site. This speed reduction is to increase safety for cyclists, pedestrians and others, and will be implemented in late February.
