Slow Down on County Roads
The speed on roads in Beaver County is 80 km/h, unless otherwise posted. This applies to both gravel and oiled roads, which are both designed to be travelled safely at the posted speeds. Of course, inclement weather conditions may warrant slower speeds to be safe.
The County's Community Peace Officers regularly monitor roads in the County.
Regular monitoring of other areas including the entry road to Beaver Creek Estates, Black Nugget Road, Spilstead Road and TWP 512 has also revealed the tendency of individuals to speed excessively.
Speeding on County roads is not without penalty - the Traffic Safety Act still applies even when you're out in the country. Here are some of the fines that you may face if you choose to speed:
