BARRIE, ONT. -- Barrie's speed limits won't be dropping anytime soon.
At a virtual meeting Monday night, city councillors voted against asking city staff to study the costs and potential effects of lowering speed limits across Barrie by 10 km/h.
Councillors did endorse a more broad-ranging examination of how to make city streets safer and how to reach the goal of zero pedestrian and cyclist deaths.
