Police to stage December traffic enforcement campaign

Agassiz RCMP will watch area north of the Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge to Morrow Road

Local RCMP announced they will stage a traffic enforcement initiative from the north side of the Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge (the Tea Cup) to Morrow Road during the month of December.

“There have been letters written to the mayor and council regarding the safety of commuters and pedestrians in the area,” said Sgt. Darren Rennie. “And I agree it can be dangerous with the high rate of speed travellers are driving in the 50 kilometres per hour zone.”

As a result, Rennie has directed officers to conduct speed enforcement in marked and unmarked units in the area this month.

“Anyone caught speeding may be charged under the Motor Vehicle Act,” he added. “The purpose of this campaign is slow traffic down to 50 kilometres per hour making it safe for vehicles and pedestrians alike.”

Officers from Fraser Valley Traffic Services will be in the area to assist the efforts of the Agassiz RCMP during the December campaign.
