On Saturday, October 27, 2018, in the afternoon, a member of the Community Safety Officers observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed on Highway 16/Highway 40. The driver was clocked going 141 km/h in an 80 km zone. 61 km/h over the posted limit. The driver was fined $921 and had their vehicle impounded for 7 days.
North Battleford Community Safety Officer Supervisor Ross MacAngus reminds drivers not to speed saying, “Speeding or driving too fast for the road conditions reduces your control of the vehicle and reduces your reaction time.” With winter driving season approaching, drivers are reminded to obey all posted speed limits, to drive at speeds that are reasonable and safe for the situation.
When you are driving you are responsible for the safety of pedestrians and other drivers. Drive safe, respect the posted limits and conditions. It will keep money in your pocket and avoid serious injury or death.
