The Terrace Speed Watch board is out again and has made its first appearances in local school zones. Cst Cates reminds the public to be aware of posted speed limits around town, especially in school zones. And although the flashing speed board is a great reminder for drivers to slow down, we need to be mindful of our speed even when the speed board is not flashing at us. Volunteers are being trained to participate in the Speed Watch program. If this is something that interests you, contact Cst Cates at 250-638-7400 to enquire about the program.
