Saskatoon police are reminding drivers once again to slow down in construction zones.
The Saskatoon Police Service traffic unit was out Tuesday near the intersection of Highway 16 and Boychuk Drive, where construction is underway on a new overpass.
Police tweeted Wednesday that officers doled out $18,000 worth of fines, catching some 50 speeders in a three-and-a-half-hour period.
