Vandals tear out speed signs east of Regina
REGINA – It appears some drivers may not agree with the lower speed limit posted on Highway 1 east of the city – and they’ve decided to do something about.
Mounties driving the stretch between Regina and Balgonie noticed Wednesday that vandals had knocked over several of the new 90 kilometer per hour signs.
RCMP are looking into the sign vandalism and anyone with information is asked to come forward.
The signs typically cost between $500 and $1,000, according to a government spokesperson.
Saskatchewan’s highways ministry hopes to have the signs repaired within a week. Until then, police will issue warnings to drivers exceeding the 90 km/h limit.
