There is a tactical system behind the placing of Fort Saskatchewan's new electronic speed signs.
The six signs are part of the city’s Vision Zero initiative, a strategy to prevent collision-related deaths, injuries and slow speeds.
"At every location, that's an area where we've had a higher rate of collisions," said municipal enforcement supervisor Matt Lowther.
The speed signs are placed by Highway 15 (entrance by Dow plant, Highway 15/21 intersection), Southfort Drive, Westpark Drive, 95th Street and 99th Avenue.
"Slow down and save somebody's life or even a serious injury," added Lowther. "Those signs are education."
The electronic signs can also record data such as amounts of traffic and average speeds.
From January to August, local drivers were in more than 240 collisions. In 2017, there were 532 collisions in Fort Saskatchewan.
