File # 2021-Speeding

It would seem some motorists are still intent on speeding…

Last week (February 18th), Langley Traffic Team partnered with the ICBC Road Safety Team on 56th Avenue near Langley Secondary School.

The Road Safety Team set up a speed reader board in the 21000 block and the Langley enforcement team staged three blocks east at 213A Street.

Motorists were warned of their speed on the reader board and given an opportunity to slow down. If they chose to disregard their fair warning and were still speeding three blocks later, they were stopped and issued a violation ticket.

In a two-hour period, 15 tickets were issued and the fastest speed was 92 km/h in a 50 zone.

Speed continues to be a major contributing factor in car crash fatalities in British Columbia. Slow down and give yourself extra time to get to your destination. It’s not worth the risk to yourself, and to others.
