Red Deer RCMP issued an updated press release on Monday correcting the cost of a fine for driving 20 km/h over the speed limit in a playground zone.

An earlier release indicated a fine of $289 was applied to such violations. In fact, the correct fine is $124.

Police spent several hours for three days in a row policing the playground zone on 47th Avenue between 46th and 48th Streets. In that time, 45 tickets were issued and 10 other drivers were given warnings for other violations.

In Red Deer, the speed limit through playground zones is 30 km/h. That speed limit is in effect from 8:30 a.m. to one hour after sunset every day.
