The Estevan Police Service isn't shy when it comes to spreading the word against speeding. Over the weekend, they tweeted out a photo of their radar showing a vehicle travelling 100 km/hr in a 60 km/hr zone.
"Unfortunately, people just don't get the message," explained Police Chief, Paul Ladouceur. "We keep posting on social media when we're getting those things to try and educate people to let them know that we're out and about. But unfortunately, they just don't learn."
He added that in this case, it resulted in a $300 fine.
"This was between Morsky and Cemetery Road heading north on Souris that this incident occurred. We just want to remind motorists, you're in the city, obviously 100 km/hr is too fast."
In addition to the reminders on social media, the EPS also have speed sign out that can be moved around the city. These signs show your speed and flash if you were over the limit.
"We have just purchased two more of those. So we'll be moving those around the city to act as reminders for people as well."
"There's no excuse. It's one thing if you were a few kilometers over, if you misjudged your speed but when your're doing 100 km in a 60, you know you're speeding. And if you don't, you shouldn't have a license."
He adds that they also recently purchased another laser radar unit and officers will be out around the city checking for speeders.
"We are seeing a lot of people driving way too fast within the city. When we see people doing 100 or double the posted limit, it's just stupidity. There's no nice way to say it, it's utter stupidity."
