    I travel the 104 from Truro to Sackville NB at least four times a month, and I can tell you for a fact that some drivers seem to think the posted speed limit is a suggestion! Even tractor trailer drivers entering the toll plaza do not reduce their speed to 80 then to 50 when they should! Slow down, your family wants you to return home at the end of the day!
