Careless drivers are getting caught going through Gibbons.
 
21 traffic charges were handed out in July, slightly higher than the average.
 
"The police have to do their job and people have to pay attention to what they're doing. There's really not much else you can say," said councillor Amber Harris.
 
Only January (27) and May (22) had more incidents than July. As a whole, from January to July, police have issued 119 traffic violations and charges.
 
"Hopefully people slow down. They have to realize school is back in and we'll be having full enforcement at both schools in the school zones and probably going to have the RCMP do spot checks again like they did last year," said councillor Darren McCann.
 
Last month, just outside Gibbons, a man was caught going 244 km/h.
 
In the spring, council discussed ways to slow down lead foot drivers, with handing out more tickets being the common solution.
