Traffic Safety “Stop Signs”

Stop Sign.BMP
Every year in Canada approximately 3,000 people die and an additional 19,000 are seriously injured in traffic collisions. On an average year in Canada there are 675,000 traffic collisions.
More than 40 per cent of all traffic accidents in Saskatchewan and about one quarter of all fatal traffic accidents occur at intersections.
Most fatal collisions at intersections happened because a driver ignored or missed the traffic control device.
Stop signs, Yield signs, and Traffic Control Lights are in place to control the flow of vehicles on highways.
The fine for disobeying a traffic control device is $230.00 and 4 points against your driver’s license under the Driver Improvement Program.
The fines are aimed at highlighting the serious safety implications of traffic violations at intersections and assist in deterring drivers from engaging in these dangerous actions.
In our effort to ensure public safety on campus roads, we want people to know that our members are out there actively enforcing our traffic safety laws, as well as looking for unsafe vehicles and impaired drivers.
