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.
