Bylaw Services Weekly Update Sept. 11 – 17, 2017

(Fort McMurray, AB – September 8, 2017) – If you need to cross a street, the best place to do so is at a crosswalk. Crosswalks are placed in areas with improved visibility and are signed to indicate to drivers that pedestrians cross the road at this location. Pedestrians should always stop, look both ways and make eye contact with drivers before entering a crosswalk. Drivers should always approach marked sidewalks with caution. 

Let’s work together to make walking and crossing roads safer for everyone.

Photo radar vehicles will be located near the following areas for week of Sept. 11 – 17, 2017:
