Saskatoon police say drivers need to slow down
Extreme speeding has been a major concern, and the Saskatoon Police Service is taking steps to curb the problem.
This after three big tickets were handed out to people caught driving a lot faster than they should be.
Const. Tisha Rae Stonehouse started by citing a case on Monday where a car was pulled over on 8th Street for travelling 127 kilometres per hour (kph) in a 50 zone.
"As a result this man's vehicle was impounded," said Stonehouse.
The 25-year-old man was also given a $524 ticket.
On Tuesday morning, a woman was pulled over on 33rd when she was clocked at 71 kph in a school zone.
"The 26-year-old Saskatoon woman was issued a $364 speeding ticket," said Stonehouse.
Then on Wednesday morning, a 17 –year-old man was pulled over for going 80 kph in a school zone on 20th Street.
Stonehouse says police will continue to drive home the point that people need to slow down.
