Photo Radar isn't the only thing police are using to crack down on speeders.
A number of speed traps were set up along the main roadway through the Fort over the weekend.
"Where we know we have problems with motorists exceeding the speed limit, Highway 15 and 114 Street is a busy location for us," commented director of Municipal Enforcement, Brad Ward.
Police use a combination of several tactics, including photo radar trucks, intersection safety devices and police presence in both ghost and marked vehicles.
"We've had some crazy speeds where it not only puts the person driving at risk but also all the other motorists," explained Ward of some of the more memorable incidents. "[We've had] people passing on the shoulders."
Ward says faster speeds increase the risk of being involved in a collision with longer reaction and stopping distances.
Speeding can land you a ticket of $78 to $474 and two to four demerit points.
