While conducting speed enforcement in the area of 184 Street and Anthony Henday Drive, officers dealt with two separate incidents involving vehicles travelling at excessive speeds. The first involved a Chrysler 200 travelling 118 km/h in the 60 km/h zone while two young children were inside. The second incident involved an Acura RDX travelling 112 km/h in the 60 km/h zone. The drivers of both vehicles were issued a mandatory court summons for speeding.

Police also responded to a collision between a vehicle and pedestrian in the area of Winterburn Road and 98 Avenue. While travelling north on Winterburn Road, the driver of a Honda CR-V reportedly did not observe other vehicles stopped for a pedestrian crossing Winterburn Road in the marked crosswalk. As the pedestrian cleared the bumper of one of the stopped vehicles, they were struck by the CR-V. The pedestrian was transported to hospital and suffered minor injuries. The driver of the CR-V was charged with failing to yield to a pedestrian.

“Operation 24 is a valuable tool to remind people the importance of abiding by the rules of the road,” says Staff Sergeant Dan Furman with the Specialized Traffic Section. “The goal of this program is to create awareness and prevent complacency, especially as we move toward our warmer months.”
