Reminder from County Peace Officers to slow down in school zones
Since school began, Lac La Biche County Peace Officers have been enforcing speed limits in school zones, and would like to remind motorists to slow down to 30 km per hour in these areas.
Within the past week, officers have stopped four vehicles travelling faster than 30 km per hour in school zones, along with one motorist travelling at more than 80 km per hour.
Remember that driving slowly saves lives: statistics show that pedestrians struck by vehicles moving faster than 50 km per hour only have a 50% survival rate. For your and the community's safety, please slow down in school zones.
