Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Speed Traps
One school zone ends and another starts about a block away. No sign saying back to 50 however. Police get you between zones.
Spanish school has entrance off Wilson Cr, where you can see the school. Poor signage regarding school zone on Clarence. The school is basically hidden there and that is where the speed trap is set up ……Definite Cash Cow. Can’t argue because the school signage is there but most drivers when asked say “Where is the school?”
The police frequently set up speed traps in the school zone in front of L’ecole Canadienne-francaise De Saskatoon. They’ll gun you right as you enter the school zone and pull you over into the alley behind the house on the corner of Clarence and 3rd St. A friend lives on 2nd Street and she indicates that the police are there on a regular basis pulling over people consistently. This gives me the impression that it’s an easy school zone to miss – otherwise why would the police be there on a regular basis? The City of Saskatoon really needs to improve the signage for school zones and protect our kids! School zone speed limits are in effect from 8am-5pm, Monday to Friday, September 1 to June 30.
Speed traps are often set up on McKercher Drive. I have seen 1 officer gunning people while 2-3 cruisers wait nearby to ticket people. It’s easy to inadvertently speed on this road as most motorists are preparing to exit onto College Drive where the speed limit increases. The police watch for both directions. It’s a cash cow for them so be diligent to watch your speed!
