VICTORIA, B.C. – The province of B.C. is considering raising speed limits, while at the same time hiring up to 100 new police officers to enforce traffic laws. Rich Coleman, Solicitor General for the province recently told local media he plans on developing a provincial traffic enforcement team that will patrol highways, operate speed traps and road checks.

“Our intention is to have an integrated traffic unit up and running as soon as we can hire the police officers early in the new year,” Coleman told reporters. At the same time, the Ministry of Transportation is taking a good look at raising the speed limit on provincial roads from 110 km/h to 120 km/h. That’s based on suggestions from a consultant’s report, which was recently released.
