  1. Thankfully the enforcement folks were at the right place at the right time ! That could have been another horrible incident ! Summers here and the idiots are really pushing limits ! Enjoy a safe summer !

  2. Thankfully, he was not driving within Morinville town limits because he would have been in for a shock 6 or 8 weeks after the fact with a ticket in the mail! That would have taught him!! A visible presence with an “on the spot” citation is the ONLY way to keep these idiots off the road and our roads safe. I much prefer that to having dangerous roads and the town / contractors bank accounts overflowing with useless photo radar fines! “Safety first for the citizens of Morinville” should be and must be the motto of Morinville council!
