Police agencies wage battle against speeders today
Aug, 23 2006 - 1:40 AM
LOWER MAINLAND/CKNW(AM980) - Chill, relax, and focus behind the wheel today or face fines.
ICBC, police and Speed Watch groups will be out Wednesday from 11 till 1 at high-traffic corridors on the Lower Mainland. They'll try to get drivers to slow down at first when they pass posted speed-reader boards. If drivers continue to speed past the police checkpoint, they'll be slapped with a ticket.
ICBC says the initiative is meant to save lives and keep insurance rates low and stable.
The speed watches will be set up from West Vancouver to Chilliwack.
