The Dawson Creek RCMP would like to remind motorists that the beginning of another school year is here, which means school zones are now in effect. School zones are active between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm on designated school days.
The Dawson Creek RCMP have already received multiple calls of motorists failing to slow down to 30 km/hr and would like to remind motorists that failing to travel the posted speed limit in a school zone could result in a violation ticket.
The minimum fine associated with speeding in a school zone is $196 and also incurs 3 points off your driver’s license. Cst. Jaime EKKEL of the Dawson Creek RCMP stated.
Motorists are reminded that the Dawson Creek RCMP will be conducting more patrols in school zones before, during and after school in attempts to locate any motorists who fail to follow the posted signs.
