Reminder to obey speed limits in construction zones

Greater Sudbury Hydro would like to remind motorists to slow down in marked areas where roadside work is taking place.

“We’ve had reports from our line workers that motorists are not slowing to safe travelling speeds in the marked zones,” Wendy Watson, a spokesperson for the utility, said in a release. “We ask that you help protect workers by driving safely. Always keep a safe distance between your vehicle and workers, equipment and other vehicles.

“It is never acceptable to drive recklessly or above the speed limit in construction zones. Safety is our greatest priority. Everyone deserves to return home from work safe and healthy.”
