Lloydminster RCMP are focusing on motorcycle and work zone safety in July.
Throughout the month, detachments all across Alberta will be drawing attention to the need for safe driving on motorcycles, and the need for motorists to be aware of them on the roads. Constable Grant Kirzinger says Lloydminster RCMP’s traffic section will be focusing on enforcing licensing and safety regulations of motorcycles in the city, as well as safe driving behaviours.
Motorcycle safety is not the only initiative the RCMP will promote this month, as the province of Saskatchewan will be focusing on Work Zone Safety. Constable Kirzinger says the RCMP is asking people to slow down in construction areas, and remain alert to people around them. He also says that drivers should resist the temptation to drive distracted, as lower speed limits do not mean it is safer to text while driving.
