No: the speed limit is 40km/h at all times and has been for many years. The school zone flashers and school zone sign were added only recently as an additional attempt to get motorists to slow down. I hope you don't drive on that street since you seem to have no idea what the speed limit is.

See this Google street view with two 40km/h signs just past James St:

https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Hunter+St,+Dundas,+ON+L9H/@43.253567,-79.870437,3a,37.5y,297.29h,90.15t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sCdHbWfYbvU0yXbpsVmTJAg!2e0!4m2!3m1!1s0x882c849ebc2576a5:0x191daa3edd16b39d

Half the drivers exceeded the posted speed limit! The speed limit is the maximum speed allowed, not the suggested average speed, despite what some people think!

I'm not sure what you are referring to as "punishment": I'm only suggesting that the actual speed limit be enforced and the road be designed appropriate to the posted speed. How is that unfair to drivers who are already driving below the speed limit?

As I wrote in the article: "Maximum speeds in excess of 70 km/h were observed during every time period" (i.e. during every one hour period). We were not given the data for the actual times, but this is what traffic staff told us. And, again, what part of "next to a primary school, daycare and seniors centre with a blind curve" do you not understand to keep claiming that 70km/h and half of all motorists speeding is not a problem in this location!

You should be ashamed to call yourself a Durander!
