Speed limits around the country's schools will be reduced to make streets safer for students, with more speed cameras planned to enforce the change.

Associate Minister of Transport Julie Anne Genter says the law changes will come into force next year but it could take up to a decade to implement nationwide.

The reduced speed limits are part of wider changes that will see the New Zealand Transport Agency take over speed cameras, which are now operated by the police.
