HWY 21 SPEED CHANGE
Maidstone RCMP would like to advise that the river hill on Highway 21 at the North Saskatchewan River (Toby Nollet Bridge) has been reduced to 60 KM/HR as there has been a temporary site of operations for the river clean up. This site is set up on the east side Highway 21 at the North Saskatchewan River and has a significant amount of vehicle traffic coming on and off the highway.
This has been identified as a road hazard and the speed zone has been changed accordingly by the Department of Highways.
The Maidstone RCMP is undertaking traffic safety initiatives in the area including checkstops and speed enforcement to facilitate the change in the speed from
100 KM/HR to 60 KM/HR. Please obey the signs and posted speed as it may prevent a serious collision and save a life.
The average speeding ticket for somebody going 20KM/HR over the posted speed limit is $130.
At this time, there is no end date for the speed zone change.
