Harsher penalties effective May 1 for drivers caught stunting, racing or speeding excessively

Changes to the Provincial Traffic Safety Act means additional punishment for drivers who are stopped by police or Community Safety Officers effective May 1st, 2024.        

Drivers caught stunting, racing, or speeding excessively (defined as 50km/h over the posted speed limit, or double the speed of the posted speed limit) will face an automatic 30-day vehicle impoundment and an immediate 7-day drivers licence suspension.  

In addition, drivers will be subjected to significant fines. Fines for these offenses were increased in October 2022 and amounts are still in effect.     

  • Stunting in a motor vehicle = $580
  • Street racing offenses escalate for each offense within a 1-year period
    • First offense = $580
    • Second offense = $1400
    • Third and subsequent offenses = $2100

North Battleford Community Safety Officers (CSOs) are peace officers who enforce the Traffic Safety Act. In addition to these harsher penalties under the provincial statute, CSOs are also able to ask for a breath sample during any traffic stop to conduct roadside alcohol screening for impaired driving.

Residents are encouraged to call 9-1-1 to report dangerous driving, or if they suspect a driver is operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
