Warning signs

Modern traffic signs use symbols instead of words. However, drivers must be familiar with both types of signs. Where applicable, both signs are shown.

As of July 1, 2017, the following high-risk locations were selected for photo speed enforcement:

  • Circle Drive in Saskatoon
  • Hwy 1 and 9th Ave. intersection in Moose Jaw
  • Ring Road in Regina
  • Hwy 1 East between Pilot Butte and White City
  • Hwy 12 at Martensville

For a current list of the locations visit www.sgi.sk.ca/alpr.
