FREDERICTON, N.B. – The departments of public safety and transportation are taking steps to slow down Route 7 drivers in an effort to reduce moose-vehicle collisions..

Statistics collected in the past month on Route 7 indicate 87 per cent of drivers exceed the 100km-h speed limit during the day, and 80 per cent of drivers are exceeding the speed limit at night.

In an effort to reduce speeds on Route 7 the two departments are initiating a pilot project involving signing and brush cutting on a 40-km section of Route 7.

The Department of Transportation employees will install two 3.6m by 2.4m signs with flashing lights at each end of the 40km section of highway. Other 3m by 1.2m warning signs will be installed at 10 kilometre intervals. Standard moose warning signs will be installed at five kilometre intervals.
