SGI urging drivers to slow down ahead of fine increase

Base fines jump up by $30 on May 1, 2018

Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) is calling for drivers in the province to slow down, ahead of a fine increase on May 1.

Currently, drivers going 20 kilometres per hour over the speed limit on a street or highway can result in a $130 fine. Under the new fee schedule, the base fine will increase by $30 and the kilometre per hour charge for travelling in excess of the speed will double.
