RCMP asks for cooperation and understanding

The Alberta RCMP encourages motorists to use caution while driving on provincial highways this Saturday, May 1, as thousands of volunteers participate in Alberta Transportation’s 45th Annual Highway Cleanup from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Every year, volunteers from various youth groups and clubs spend the day walking alongside our roadways picking up trash and litter as a means of raising funds for their organizations or chosen charities. 

The Alberta RCMP asks motorists to slow down in marked cleanup areas and to be aware of the added foot-traffic. The RCMP will also increase patrols across provincial highways to enforce traffic safety and prevent speeding in these areas. 

For more traffic safety information, follow us on Facebook @RCMPinAlberta and Twitter @RCMPAlberta.
