Mounties enforcing school zone speeds

Ridge Meadows RCMP partners with others this past month to remind motorists to watch for students

School is back, and kids are on the roads.

Local Mounties are issuing a reminder, and asking for drivers to slow down.

Ridge Meadows RCMP have been joining forces with ICBC, the local school district, as well as Canadian Pacific police, and even the Metro Vancouver Transit Police to remind people to adhere to school zone speed limits.

Some things motorists need to remember, apart from being aware of school zone signage, are to remember to reduce speed in school zones, be ready to stop at all times as children don’t always notice oncoming traffic, always try and make eye contact with children waiting at crossings, and of course, be patient and wait for children to complete their crossing before proceeding.
