The Estevan Police Service is reminding drivers to watch your speed. Last night, they responded to a number of driving incidents. 

"Police received a call of an erratic driver," explained Sgt Tyler McMillan with the Estevan Police Service, "on King Street and then northbound on Souris Ave."

"The plate was obtained, a description of the vehicle was given and that matter remains under investigation."

The vehicle was seen leaving town but Sgt McMillan noted that with the information gathered, police will be able to follow up.

Because of that incident, police members focused their efforts on traffic enforcement last night. In total, four speeders were stopped. 

 "It was a little concerning, their speeds were ranging from about 36 km over up to 42 km over the speed limit. Those fines ranged from between $546 to $708."

He reminded all drivers to slow down, especially since the weather is expected to warm up, more people will be out on the streets.

"There's lots of hockey now at the rink, there are a few kids out riding their bikes trying to get the last rides in. Halloween is coming so we want people to remember to watch for our youth and kids as they patrol around."
