Kamloops City

Every year, when the fall arrives and the daylight hours’ decrease, Kamloops experiences a dramatic increase in motor vehicle incidents involving pedestrians. The Kamloops RCMP is reminding everyone to please be aware and be extra vigilant while on the roadway for the safety of everyone. It will make our community a safer place if we all just take a few steps to promote road safety.

The Kamloops RCMP provides tips for everyone on the roadway during the fall season:

Pedestrians:
Drivers:

Be kind to one another, smile, walk briskly, wave, and thank others for giving you the right of way when crossing. Courtesy for everyone will save lives in our community and hopefully reduce the number of pedestrian accidents we have! It doesn’t matter if you had the right of way if you are laying in a hospital bed, says Sgt. Darren Michels of the Kamloops Detachment.
