SACKVILLE, N.B. – Sackville motorists will likely become more mindful of the speed they’re driving in 2014.
The town recently approved funding to purchase new electronic speed signs this year, with possibly up to three units being acquired for use throughout the community.
Coun. Margaret Tusz-King said with concerns being raised within the past couple of years over several areas where speeding has become an issue, the town decided to try and curb the problem.
“For drivers, this will make them more aware of the speed they’re driving,” she said. “And hopefully we’ll be able to get people to slow down and moderate their speed, particularly in certain areas.”
The speed signs, which will be portable, will be able to be moved around to various locations, which will allow RCMP to monitor the speed in different areas of town.
