Police respond to complaints; greater enforcement this week

In concert with the Operation TEN-4 Traffic Initiative, Stettler RCMP have received numerous complaints regarding traffic

In concert with the Operation TEN-4 Traffic Initiative, Stettler RCMP have received numerous complaints regarding traffic in the downtown area of Stettler.

A concerned citizen reported there are many drivers talking on their cellphones or texting, drivers not yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks, and drivers stunting or speeding.

There have been several instances where drivers have come close to hitting pedestrians when they have been walking in a crosswalk or while crossing the street on a green light, with the walk symbol indicated.

The majority of the infractions that have been reported are on 50 Street, at 48, 49 and 50 avenues, and the crosswalks in between those avenues.

The public is advised that this Thursday and Friday, there will be a concentration of RCMP members doing traffic enforcement in downtown Stettler. The focus will be directed on speeding, distracted drivers and vehicle equipment violations, such as tinted windows.

Results of that traffic-enforcement action will be published in next week’s newspaper.
