Some help­ful tips

Please obey the speed limit this sum­mer, es­pe­cially through res­i­den­tial ar­eas where chil­dren may be play­ing in the streets. Driv­ing even 10 kilo­me­tres over the speed limit can af­fect how quickly you can stop your car if a child runs out in front of it. Al­ways heed posted speed lim­its, take your time at stop signs and stay alert. As­sume that chil­dren may be play­ing in the streets dur­ing evening hours as well.

Sum­mer is also con­struc­tion sea­son. Of­ten speed lim­its are re­duced and traf­fic can come to an im­me­di­ate stand-still with­out much no­tice. For the safety of our road work­ers and that of other driv­ers, please stay alert and abide by the posted traf­fic signs.
