Mounties hand out 242 coupons for traffic infractions in school zones
Released by Cst tracy Wolbeck, Chilliwack RCMP, UFVRD
or the first two weeks of September, Chilliwack Traffic Services, along with our Speed Watch Volunteers and Safer Cities, conducted extensive school zone patrols and stationary enforcement.
There was a minimum of two dedicated projects each day focused on various schools around Chilliwack during the start and end of the school day. These projects involved Chilliwack Traffic Services Members, one or two volunteer Speed Watch Teams, Safer Cities, School Liaison Members and Auxiliary constables.
The main focus was on high
visibility to reinforce the reduced school zone speed limits, and to
increase safety for children and motorists in these areas.
"The purpose of this
project was to reinforce the reduced speed limits in school zones so
that we can keep our children safe," said Cpl. Lee Dyson.
"Chilliwack Traffic Services Members will continue to keep school
zone enforcement as a targeted priority with this goal in mind."
