On Wednesday and Thursday, May 20 and 21, Cranbrook RCMP members focused on an on-going issue with motorists near and around the intersection of 14th Ave Street and Baker Street.

Mount Baker Secondary School has been experiencing issues with motorists speeding through their school zone. During this two-day operation, RCMP members focused on providing a visible presence during peak traffic times.

On Wednesday, May 20, several written warnings for various Motor Vehicle Act/Regulation infractions were delivered to motorists. On Thursday May 21, more written warnings were issued along with violation tickets for traffic offenses within the school zone.

Cranbrook RCMP believes that with increased presence and the addition of the speed radar sign (located at 14th Avenue North and 2nd Street North), motorists will concentrate on adhering to the posted school zone signage.

“Cranbrook RCMP are committed to the safety of students which can be accomplished by reminding motorists to exercise caution when driving in school zones,” said Cst. Elisha Belonio.
