Community Safety Zones

Community Safety Zones (CSZ) are sections of roadways where fines for traffic violations are increased through a special designation under the Highway Traffic Act (HTA). Community Safety Zones are marked with signs at the beginning and end of the areas denoting the legal limits and are in effect 24 hours of the day. Community Safety Zones modify driver behavior to influence slower speeds and enhance public safety through these locations.
