Slow Down on Highway 12

Troopers are warning travellers on Highway 12 to slow down.

Near the Highway's intersection with the 730, road construction has pushed the speed down from 60 to 50.

Troopers say people are driving too fast, are following too close, and are passing unsafely.

They say they are putting extra patrols in the area over the next couple weeks to slow down the unsafe drivers.
