RCMP stepping up presence in 2 Martensville school zones
MARTENSVILLE, Sask. – RCMP are receiving numerous public complaints about traffic safety near two schools in Martensville, Sask. Their goal is to keep children safe but officers are having trouble getting the message across to drivers.
Over the last several months, residents have raised concerns in the school zones of Valley Manor Elementary School and Venture Heights Elementary School.
Traffic concerns include illegal u-turns, vehicles stopped in the middle of the street to let students out and motorists passing school buses while the stop arm is deployed.
In response, Mounties have partnered up with school administrators and Martensville bylaw enforcement and have increased their presence in these high-risk areas.
