Laws, fines apply on campus
With the approach of winter and the usual problems stopping and starting
on icy streets, Campus Safety says motorists, pedestrians and bike riders
need to pay particular attention to traffic safety in and around the University.
Drivers are reminded that provincial traffic laws apply and are enforced
on campus. Here is a sampling of some of the rules, and the result of
failing to obey them:
- Failing to yield to a pedestrian — $140 fine.
- Failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign — $220 fine
+ 4 pts. on license.
- Speeding from 41-61 km — $70 + $1 for each kilometer over the
speed limit plus a Victim of Violent Crime surcharge of $30. As speed
increases, the rate moves higher. A recent offender caught doing 101
km per hour was fined $434.
- Bikes failing to yield to vehicles on the roadway — $140.
- Failure to follow the directions of a peace officer — $140.
Campus Safety suggests everyone slow down in accordance with road conditions
to avoid mishaps and fines when traveling through campus.
