“Slow Down in the Orange Zone”
We are concerned about speed issues when motorists are passing our maintenance and construction employees. We continue to get complaints from our workers about reckless driver behaviour showering them with gravel. The safety of our workers is our main concern.
Our municipal graders maintaining municipal roads are considered to be in the “Orange Zone” where the travelling public should reduce their speed to 60 km/hr. Motorists should take note of the provincial fines. Driver attitude towards our maintenance and construction work areas needs to change or even stiffer penalties may be introduced. We are seeking the RCMP’s assistance in this regard. Follow the signs and slow down for the safety of workers and your own.
