“50 KM/H UNLESS SIGNED OTHERWISE”
The Highway Traffic Act stipulates that all roads within a City are 50 kilometres per hour, unless signed otherwise. This includes all roadways within the City limits, regardless whether the road is in an urban area or a rural area.
Signs are installed at major entry ways into the City indicating “50 km/h Unless Signed Otherwise.” These signs advise drivers of the default speed limit within the City where signs are not present.
Remember, when you are driving on any street in Niagara Falls and you do not see any speed limit signs, the speed limit on that street is 50 km/h.
