Police across the province were out in full force on Thursday ticketing dangerous drivers.

It's part of the traffic blitz police are calling Fall Frenzy that targets aggressive drivers.

Const. Quinn Hanoski and her partner had a busy day pulling people over in a Regina school zone. 

"It seems like there are a lot of speeders in this zone," Hanoski said. "I don't know if it's just not done as often or if people aren't aware."

Hanoski said most of the drivers were polite when they were handed their tickets. 

It's nothing to get mad about, it's my fault- Chris Martin-Strandlund

Chris Martin-Strandlund was caught driving 61 kilometres per hour in a Regina school zone. He said he lost track of his speed and accepted the ticket.  

"It's nothing to get mad about," Martin-Strandlund said. "It's my fault."

According to SGI, aggressive driving was a factor in 10,000 collisions and 92 deaths in Saskatchewan last year.
