Changes to legislation imposing new penalties are effective as of March 1. Enforcement will begin on May 1.

REGINA — Drivers who stunt, street race or commit high-speed offences will lose their driver’s licence for a week and their vehicle for a month.

Changes to legislation are effective as of March 1. Enforcement will begin on May 1. 

Drivers caught stunting, street racing, exceeding the speed limit by more than 50 km/h or double the posted limit will receive a 30-day vehicle impoundment and immediate seven-day licence suspension, in addition to the increased fines* that were imposed for stunting and street racing in 2022.  

In addition to the fines, demerits and inconvenience of losing a licence and use of a vehicle, the registered owner of the impounded vehicle is responsible for the towing and storage fees. At the end of the suspension term, the customer will have to visit a motor licence issuer to have their driver’s licence reprinted for a fee.  

Drivers who receive multiple traffic convictions also face potential further sanctions under SGI’s Driver Improvement Program.
