“We’re continuing to get traffic complaints,” said Sgt. Dave Preston.

Other areas of concern include Victoria Road.

He said warnings about the dangers of speeding are important now as days are shorter and lighting conditions can affect driving.

Preston said police are patrolling areas in the community and are ticketing speeders.

In addition, members of Summerland Citizens on Patrol have been setting up speed watch patrols in some areas of the community, with a display board to show motorists how fast they are travelling.
