Pump the Brakes on Speeding

Fines are often double when driving in a designated construction zone

Manitoba has some of the highest speeding fines in North America, and just because workers aren’t present doesn’t mean you won’t get fined for speeding in construction zones.

Reduced speed limits in construction zones are designed to keep workers on-site safe. However, construction zones can be dangerous places for drivers too if people aren’t abiding by the designated rules and regulations.

When road work is taking place, roads are often re-routed and altered to accommodate the construction. While most people assume that the reduced speed limits are strictly for worker safety, those same speed limits are enforced to keep drivers safe and help them adjust to changes in terrain and routes.

“The faster you drive, the harder it hits your wallet.”
