“The maximum speed limits posted along the highways are for ideal road conditions when it is warm and dry,” said Cpl. Adam Schedlosky, Community Policing unit commander with Wood Buffalo RCMP in a release. “Drivers need to remember to drive according to the road and weather conditions. It is important to remember to keep a safe distance between yourself and the vehicle in front of you to avoid situations where you may have to brake suddenly.”
The release says motorists can face fines for not driving safely for the conditions, including a possible $172 fine for driving too fast for road and weather conditions and $402 for careless driving.
