A 22-year-old woman has been handed a hefty fine after speeding through a construction zone just north of Ericksdale.

RCMP officers clocked her going 178 km/h in a clearly marked 100 km/h construction zone.

The woman was given a serious offence notice for a license review with MPI and slapped with a $2092 fine.

According to Manitoba RCMP, that’s the highest fine issued so far this year for speeding in a construction zone.

The highest regular speeding ticket in 2019 was $1,256 for a driver speeding 92 km/h over the limit.
