NEWS - Variable Speed Limit Signs Activated
Variable speed signs are now operational in three areas of British Columbia. The signs will be changed to moderate traffic speeds during poor weather in an effort to prevent collisions. On site weather and road condition monitors report to the regional traffic management center in Coquitlam where staff will change the speed signs remotely. A flashing yellow light on the top of the sign will flash when the speed had been reduced to reinforce the fact that action must be taken by drivers.
These signs are not a recommendation. Failing to follow the speed displayed on them will result in the driver being ticketed when enforcement is present.
