Newfoundland and Labrador Legislature Addresses Oil Spills, Construction Zone SpeedingAuthor/Presenter: Maher, David
In addition to addressing the largest oil spill in the province’s history, this article also discusses the issue with construction zone speeding. A recent pilot project using traffic cameras to watch for fast drivers has turned up a startling number of drivers speeding in construction zones. Almost 50 percent of drivers were found speeding in construction zones on the Salmonier Line, Route 420, and the Veterans Memorial Highway. The average speed observed by the cameras was 73 km/h in the 50 km/h zones. A piece of legislation that needs to be changed for the enforcement part is currently in the works.
