Red car speeding around a corner

Slow down for summer

Unsafe speeds increase the risk of collision and serious injury for all road users.

Unfortunately, this traffic safety violation is a common habit among many drivers. Last year, there were about 70,580 speeding-related offences in Alberta RCMP jurisdiction, with officers issuing 5,220 speeding tickets in April 2021 alone.

Don’t be a speedster. Remember the following when out on the roads this spring:

—The faster you go, the longer it takes you to stop. Speeding affects your ability to come to a quick stop in the event of an unexpected traffic hazard.

—Always drive to conditions. Posted limits indicate the maximum legal speed permitted in ideal conditions (Government of Alberta, 2022). Alberta’s road and weather conditions are unpredictable; ensure you adjust your speed accordingly.

—Give yourself a few extra minutes. Allowing extra time to get to your destination helps to avoid feeling rushed in traffic.

—Be aware of speed limits in playground and construction zones. These areas often have high pedestrian traffic. You must slow down.

“According to Alberta Transportation, more than half of all fatal collisions involving unsafe speeds occur in rural areas,” says Insp. Chris Romanchych of Alberta RCMP Traffic Services.

“We want our communities to feel safe out on our province’s roadways. Speed shouldn’t be the reason a loved one doesn’t make it home.”

Crowsnest Pass woman among four charged after recovery of stolen vehicles

A truck stolen from Coleman, a car and licence plate stolen from Coalhurst, and a licence plate stolen from Nanton were recovered Oct. 20 by members of the Southern Alberta District RCMP Crime Reduction Unit and Coaldale RCMP. A black generator, also believed to be stolen, and a number of jerry cans were recovered as well.

The investigation also resulted in the seizure of weapons, methamphetamine, cannabis and fentanyl.

The 29-year-old Coleman woman is charged with two counts of possession of stolen property and a 24-year-old man is charged with two counts of possession of stolen property, failing to comply with a release order, possession of a prohibited weapon and failure to comply with a prohibited-weapon order. 

Both are scheduled to appear Dec. 1 in Lethbridge provincial court.

Another 24-year-old man was arrested on six outstanding warrants along with new charges of possession of stolen property and failure to comply with release order. He was remanded in custody after a judicial hearing and will appear in Lethbridge provincial court Oct. 27.

The fourth individual, a 29-year-old man from Lethbridge, is charged with two counts of possession of stolen property, two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, and operation of a motor vehicle while prohibited. He was released from custody following a judicial hearing and will appear Dec. 1 in Lethbridge provincial court.

As all persons are presumed innocent until convicted in court, Shootin’ the Breeze includes names of the accused only when there is a specific need for the public to know.

The Crime Reduction Unit extends thanks to rural residents who allowed unit members to conduct surveillance from their properties.

Alberta RCMP encourage the public and business owners to report any criminal or suspicious activity. Reports tell RCMP where to look, who to look for and where to patrol in the future.
