Bylaw Services Weekly Update: Nov. 14-20, 2016

(Fort McMurray, AB – November 10, 2016) – Fewer daylight hours means that it’s harder to see pedestrians. We’re reminding motorists to be especially careful when approaching crosswalks and school zones. 

We urge pedestrians to only use marked crosswalks as they’re designed for increased visibility. Pedestrians can increase visibility by wearing reflective or lighter coloured clothing. Let’s work together to improve safety!

Photo radar vehicles will be located near the following areas for week of Nov. 14-20, 2016:

  • Confederation Way
  • MacKenzie Boulevard
  • Thickwood Boulevard
  • Highway 63 between Hospital Street and Beacon Hill
  • Highway 69
  • School Zones within the Urban Service Area
