RCMP remind drivers to scrape windshields
Although Drumheller has so far been spared snowfall, the low temperatures still result in frosty windshields.
RCMP remind drivers to please take the time to warm up your vehicle or thoroughly clean your front windshield and side windows. You must ensure you have a clear view of your surroundings.
Failure to do so may result in a $155 ticket.
Police are also concerned with bike safety as the days get shorter and the nights get longer.
RCMP see that local cyclists are finding themselves travelling in darker hours. The Vehicle Equipment Regulations of Alberta state a person shall not ride a bicycle at night unless it is equipped with at least one headlamp, one red tail lamp, and one red rear mounted reflector.
Cyclists are encouraged to wear bright or reflective clothing in order to make themselves more visible to motorists.
