Google Translate
Translation – Explanation and Caution

The electronic translation service on the City of Surrey’s web site is hosted by Google Translate. The quality of the translation may vary in some of the languages offered by Google. The goal of the basic translation is to capture the general intention of the original English material.

Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 50 languages. Unfortunately, not all the languages spoken in the City of Surrey are translated. Punjabi is one of the languages not currently offered, and to remedy the situation, the City has been in contact with Google and they have committed to making Punjabi available in the future.

The City of Surrey cannot guarantee the quality, accuracy, or completeness of any translated information. Before you act on translated information, the City encourages you to confirm any facts that are important to you and the decisions you make.

The City of Surrey offers interpretation services at all its facilities. If you have a question about the material you read on our web site, we encourage you to stop by a City facilities to discuss it. You can also contact the City at (604) 591-4011 to receive interpretation support.

Broader respect and understanding of the traffic laws is a fundamental means of reducing speeds.  Fear of penalties can be a potent deterrent and the RCMP has the responsibility to enforce the traffic laws and speed limits.  It is unrealistic to have enforcement everywhere and all of the time, and the RCMP therefore concentrates its resources at locations where it is known there are high numbers of collisions.  The RCMP does not undertake enforcement as a means of revenue collection.  To ensure drivers know what a speed limit is and understand why it is there, the City has a responsibility to ensure speed limits are reasonable and consistently applied.  The City is currently reviewing how speed limits are set throughout Surrey.
