Road safety week focuses on neighbourhood speeding

Mayor Roxanne Carr has officially proclaimed the third week of May Road Safety Week in Strathcona County.

Chosen to align with the National Road Safety Week in Canada, the focus of 2017 is Neighbourhood Traffic Safety. From May 14 to 22, Strathcona County residents are encouraged to show their support and encourage safe speeds by displaying a lawn sign.

CARTS (Community Action on Residential Traffic Safety), in collaboration with Strathcona County and the RCMP and Enforcement Services, is organizing the lawn sign campaign, to build awareness of the impacts speeding has on safety and liveability in our community.

Pick up a lawn sign at one of the following locations:

  • RCMP and Enforcement Services Open House and Safety Fair (May 13)
  • RCMP and Enforcement Services Main Reception - 911 Bison Way
  • Community Centre or Community Hall Information Desks - 401 Festival Lane
  • Heartland Hall Rural Contact Office - 55305 Range Road 214
  • South Rural Contact Office - 22142 South Cooking Lake Road

Thank you to the Alberta Traffic Safety fund for sponsoring the lawn signs.
