According to the Alberta Traffic Safety Plan 2015, the issue of speeding not only includes driving at speeds beyond the posted limits but also driving too fast for the prevailing weather, road and traffic conditions.

Speed limits signs indicate the maximum speed allowed when conditions are ideal. Speeds that are unsafe for the current weather conditions are considered illegal.

For speeds 1-15km/hr over the posted speed limit, the fine is between $78 to $120 with 2 demerit points.

For speeds 16-30km/hr over the posted speed limit, the fine is between $140 to $239 and 3 demerit points.

For speeds 31-50km/hr over the posted speed limit, the fine is between $253 to $474 and 4 demerit points.

For speeds more than 51km/hr over the posted speed limit, it is a mandatory court appearance and 6 demerit points.
