A Regina man is facing dangerous driving charges after he was allegedly clocked going more than double the speed limit in a construction zone.
The man was arrested after RCMP spotted an SUV travelling 134 kilometres an hour in the 60 kilometre an hour zone.
The 42-year-old, whose name hasn't been released, is set to appear in a North Battleford court on Nov. 21.
RCMP say arrest was made during a traffic enforcement blitz in a construction zone on Highway 16 southeast of Maidstone over the Thanksgiving weekend.
A total of 50 tickets were handed out during the blitz, including 23 for speeding in an orange zone.
RCMP are reminding drivers to slow down to 60 kilometres an hour when passing highway workers and equipment.
