Members of the Saskatoon Police Service Traffic Unit will be conducting enforcement over the next few weeks, looking for violations of the City of Saskatoon Noise Bylaw 8244.
The city is surrounded by roadways which have traditionally been part of highway infrastructure, however expanding residential areas have resulted in a mix of heavy use roadways and homes. A municipal noise bylaw prohibits the use of engine retarder brakes under Section 6(d). SPS traffic officers will be addressing the use of engine retarder brakes at various locations during peak traffic hours. The fine for such offences is currently at $250.00.
