IN ROAD WORK ZONES
- Construction workers, flagpersons, technicians, engineers and other workers are often on site around the clock. These workers:
- are not always visible and may be hidden by machines, material or structures
- are not always protected by movable safety structures, such as cones, delineator posts and cement-block barriers
- Traffic is generally diverted, which may mean making a detour, driving in a narrow lane, etc.
- The road work zone changes constantly to meet the needs of workers, which is why it is so important to slow down and be extra careful.
WHEN NEAR A ROAD WORK ZONE
- Obey signs and signals and the posted speed limit.
- Watch out for and pay attention to flagpersons and other workers: they are vulnerable.
FINES DOUBLE FOR SPEEDING IN ROAD WORK ZONES!
In order to ensure the safety of workers and other road users, fines are doubled when it comes to speeding in road work zones. Take care to respect the posted limits and slow down.
In a road work zone where the posted speed limit on an orange sign is 70 km/h, if you are travelling at:
- 90 km/h, the fine is $110 ($55 x 2), plus costs
- 100 km/h, the fine is $210 ($105 x 2), plus costs
- 115 km/h, the fine is $390 ($195 x 2), plus costs
