Although the roads are clear and the weather is warm, the Saskatoon Police Service is cautioning drivers to slow their speeds.
On May 21, 2017, Police issued a $572 speeding ticket after officers recorded a vehicle going 138km/hour in a 50km/hour zone on 8th St. E. Then On May 22, 2017, a driver was caught going 153km/hour in a 60km/hour zone at Claypool Drive and McClocklin Rd.
SPS would like to remind all drivers to watch for, and abide by the posted speed limits in and around Saskatoon.
Police are encouraging motorists to drive with caution during the May long weekend, which is traditionally the official launch of summer travel in Saskatchewan. Highways typically see an increase in traffic and with that, an increase in serious collisions.
In order to make the weekend safer for all road users, the Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan unit (Central Region), along with the Saskatoon Police Service Traffic Unit, are teaming up to ensure that everyone gets to their destinations safely.
