Maidstone RCMP say an increase in motor vehicle collisions has been reported with the nicer weather.
The Mounties say given the warmer temperatures, wildlife such as deer and moose are more active and pose a real risk to commuters.
Maidstone RCMP also is reminding motorist to be cognizant of the speed limits in rural areas, such as :
- Township Road 504, 514 and 490 are 80 KM/HR unless otherwise posted.
- Highway 16 is 110 KM/HR unless otherwise posted.
- Highway 17 is 100 KM/HR unless otherwise posted.
Between March 27 and April 2, Maidstone RCMP say 34 drivers were stopped for speeding and subsequently charged.
