Police say that too many people aren’t sticking to speed limits when they’re on the water, which is putting other people at risk.

Police will set up speed cameras at fixed points by the water’s edge and will carry out radar checks near port entrances and on the shoreline. Just like with drivers who speed on the road, anyone breaking speed limits will be reported to the relevant authorities.

Speed limits on waterways and lakes in the canton of Fribourg vary from 10 km per hour 300 metres from the edge of the shore on lakes Neuchâtel and Murten to 15 km per hour on the Broye Canal.
