Redcliff, Alberta – During the month of April, officers from the Redcliff RCMP Detachment have concentrated their efforts on preventing dangerous driving behaviours, and as a result issued a large number of speeding tickets. Collisions where speeding was a factor can have serious, or even fatal consequences for drivers, passengers, cyclists, and pedestrians alike. When dangerous driving behaviours were observed by Members of the RCMP, we protected the motoring public by enforcing the Traffic Safety Act.
Between April 27 and April 30, 2017, Redcliff RCMP members issued 52 speeding tickets within Cypress County and the Town of Redcliff. 25 of these tickets were issued for driving 30 km/hr, or more, over the posted limit. Of note, a 26 year old female from Medicine Hat driving a Hyundai Tiburon, was charged with driving at 192 km/hr on Highway 1.
The Redcliff RCMP would like to remind everyone that speed can and does kill, so please, for your own sake, and the sake of those around you, follow the rules of the road, and do your part to make sure everyone gets to their destination safely – today, and every day.
