Chilliwack – At the height of summer and not a care in the world, drivers should be caring about their speed. RCMP supported by the City of Chilliwack Safer City Speed Watch conducted ‘three strike’ traffic enforcement as police continue to target speedy drivers.
Motorists traveling along Chilliwack River Road who ignored speed limit signage –strike one-, Chilliwack Speed Watch roadside postings – strike two-, were met by Chilliwack RCMP Traffic Service officers –strike three- during mid-morning traffic enforcement by police on July 31, 2019.
“Police encourage drivers to slow down,” advises Constable Josh Becker of the Chilliwack RCMP. “Making our roads safer by preventing and reducing unsafe driving behaviour remains our focus.”
In partnership with The City of Chilliwack Safer City drivers impacting the safety of the travelling public will remain the target of enhanced enforcement by Chilliwack RCMP.
“Road safety is a priority,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD. “We take that priority seriously.”
