We are very happy to acknowledge the Government of Saskatchewan for being a fund provider in our traffic safety community project. With the help of their funding, we were able to purchase 3 speed radar signs to be used during road construction season.
Roadside work is extremely dangerous. Add excessive speeds of drivers and the proximity of the workers to traffic flow, and the combination can be deadly. Radar speed signs provide a proven, effective and affordable traffic-calming solution for reducing speeding drivers. We also want to remind drivers to be mindful of workers while travelling through construction areas. Always obey traffic signs and directions from any flag person you see. And above all else, be patient, slow down and stay alert.
As you drive through their workplace, please remember that these workers are our friends, neighbours, and family members - it's important that we do our part to get them home safe!
