A graph presented to Laurentian Valley council on May 17 shows the proportion of speeders to drivers along the 70 km/h section of B-Line Road between Russham and Forest Lea.

A graph presented to Laurentian Valley council on May 17 shows the proportion of speeders to drivers along the 70 km/h section of B-Line Road between Russham and Forest Lea.

The Township of Laurentian Valley is starting to get a picture of how drivers behave on municipal roads, and the answer is “quickly.”

Thanks to the new roadside radar speed sign, public works manager Mark Behm was able to present to council a detailed breakdown on the speeds registered by nearly 5,000 motorists travelling along B-Line Road in the 70 kilometre per hour zone between Russham and Forest Lea roads.

In all, 4,771 vehicles were tracked by the sign between May 4 and 10, and of those, 3,734 were exceeding the posted speed limit.

The speediest lead-foot along that road was recorded driving 127 km/h – nearly 60 km/h above the posted speed limit. According to Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act, that constitutes stunt driving, an infraction that carries with it some of the stiffest penalties the act lays out, including a seven-day roadside vehicle impoundment and licence suspension, a fine between $2,000 and $10,000, and even up to six months in jail.

Thankfully, the vast majority of speeders along B-Line over the course of that week were much closer to the posted limit, with half of them driving between 71 and 77 km/h, and 85 per cent topping out at 87 km/h.

On average, motorists cruised along B-Line Road at 76 km/h, according to the sign’s collected data.

According to Behm, the township will spend the next week measuring the speed of drivers along the 50 km/h section of B-Line, closer to Petawawa Boulevard.
