Saskatchewan police confirmed they issued 449 tickets during the September Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) traffic safety spotlight in September.

During the month, the Crown corporation insurance provider was focused on school zone safety and 439 tickets were given for speeding near schools. Aside from tickets issued by police officers, there were 1,542 photo speed tickets sent to motorists. Seven tickets were given for failing to yield to pedestrians at school zone intersections and crosswalks, while one ticket was for pedestrians walking in front of a vehicle.

In a press release, SGI says the posted speed limit in school zones is different across Saskatchewan municipalities. Fines for speeding is set to start at $140 and increase for ever kilometre per hour over the limit.

The company also reported on the following offences not around school zones:
