UBC patrolman Axel Nicholson reminds motorists that campus speed
limits are now posted in kilometers per hour as part of Canada's
conversion to the metric system. Speed limit on campus is now 30
km/h, metric equivalent of the former 20 miles per hour. Other speeds
to watch out for on approaches to the UBC campus are 50 km/h (30
mph) and 80 km/h (50 mph).
Ed.'s Note: If you are still driving 80 km/h on the approach
to campus you're going too fast!
