Saskatchewan law enforcement were busy in July handing out tickets for speeding, aggressive driving, and other infractions, all part of that month’s traffic safety blitz.
According to the numbers provided by SGI, 113 tickets were given to people traveling through work zones with 110 of those involving speeding.
Over 100 were for exceeding 60 km/h while passing highway workers or occupied highway equipment within a work zone. Six tickets were for speeding in orange zones where a flag person was present. Three tickets printed for failing to obey the direction of a flag person or peace officer.
When it comes to general speeding or aggressive driving, 414 tickets were given for exceeding the posted speed limit by 35 km/h. Sixty tickets were written up for exceeding the posted speed limit by 50 km/h and six tickets were given for traveling double the posted limit.
There were also close to 4,600 other speed-related offences.
SGI also indicated there were 338 impaired driving-related offences, 318 tickets for distracted driving (185 of those for using a cellphone), and 447 tickets for not using a seatbelt or the appropriate car seat or booster seat.
