An area of Highway 15 is concerning the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP.
Officers saw two instances of drivers going more than 60 km/h above the speed limit on the highway near the Highway 37 intersection recently.
"[That's] definitely a problem area for speeders that seem to be commuting at the early morning hours. These aren't the only two incidents that we've had, and that's why we do increase traffic control at that time," explained Constable Lauren Mowbray with the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP.
The first instance was on Sept.7 at 5:14 a.m. Police were conducting photo radar in the area and recorded a speeder going 168 km/h in a 100 km/h zone.
Then in nearly the exact same location at 5:22 a.m. on Nov.9, another speeder was caught travelling 166 km/h.
"There are posted speed limits for a reason, and roads are designed for such speeds. So on this stretch of Highway, [it's] 100 km/h. Obviously, if you're travelling in excess of that 100 km posted speed, there are increased risk factors. There's wildlife on the road; there's the risk of not being able to stop in time for vehicle or traffic control devices ahead of you. So we just ask that everybody acknowledge and abide by the posted speed limits," added Mowbray.
Since the two high-flyers were going over 50 km/h above the speed limit, they both were given mandatory court dates.
