Drivers heading from Kamloops to the Alberta border will have to ease their foot off the gas pedal in two places.

The province is lowering speed limits on several sections of highway in the province, including two in the Shuswap.

Following a review of three years’ worth of data on 33 segments and 1,300 kilometres of highway, where speed limits were increased as part of the 2014 Rural Safety and Speed Review, 15 sections of highway, totalling 570 kilometres, will have speed limits rolled back by 10 km/h.

This includes a reduction in speed from 100 km/h to 90 km/h on the Trans-Canada Highway between Chase and Sorrento and from 90 km/h to 80 km/h on Highway 97A between Grindrod and Sicamous.

The Observer would like to know our reader’s opinions on the upcoming speed limit changes, so feel free to vote in the web poll below.
