Bill 213: Increasing Speed Limits on Provincial Highways

Spruce Grove-Stony Plain MLA Searle Turton recently introduced Bill 213, the Traffic Safety (Maximum Speed Limit for Provincial Freeways) Amendment Act, which, if passed, would set the maximum speed limit for many provincial freeways at 120 kilometres per hour.

Turton introduced the bill after conducting interprovincial and international comparisons that showed increasing speed limits would better synchronize driving speeds between posted limits without leading to safety concerns for drivers.

Bill 213 would allow motorists to use our freeways at the speeds they were designed and engineered for, and match posted speed limits with the realistic speeds commuters follow.
