Around 70 tickets were handed out by the Ridge Meadows RCMP Wednesday morning in front of Yennadon elementary.
These tickets, though, were not fines, but information cards designed and coloured by Grade 2 students at the Maple Ridge school to promote slowing down in school zones.
As RCMP officers clocked drivers entering the school zone in both directions, Kindergarten students stood on the front lawn, holding signs telling drivers to slow down, which they also chanted.
The campaign, called Think of Me, was initially launched in 2014 by Cnst. Colin Helm, an RCMP officer in Digby, N.S.
Cnst. Julie Klaussner, with the RCMP’s uniformed community response unit, said RCMP were handing out “positive tickets” on Wednesday.
“To remind people that it’s the kids who go to the school that we want people to slow down for,” she added.
