FREDERICTON, N.B. — New Brunswick drivers should consider themselves warned: Slowdown or pay the penalty.

Lead-footed drivers now face a $300 fine if caught by enforcement officers.

The RCMP report that New Brunswick drivers are routinely driving in excess of 160 km-h on four-lane highways, the province has decided to increase the fines for drivers who travel more than 50 km-h over the posted limit.
