New penalties for stunting and street racing in Saskatchewan

Starting May 1, Saskatchewan drivers will lose their driver’s licence for a week and their vehicle for a month for high speeds, street racing, and stunts.

The new penalties for these infractions, including exceeding the speed limit by more than 50 km/h or double the posted limit will be a 30-day vehicle impoundment and immediate seven-day licence suspension. This will be in addition to the increased fines imposed for stunting and street racing in 2022. Those start at $580 for a first offence.

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

Changes to legislation are effective as of March 1 and enforcement will begin on May 1 as shown in the table below.
