Cranbrook, BC (April 13, 2022) – With the return of the nice weather, we will start to see more traffic on our roads and more City staff and contractors out working. Road maintenance workers and emergency response staff work on our streets and roads all year round serving our residents. It is so important for drivers to be aware of their presence. Please slow down and move over to give these personnel the space they need to be safe.
When driving through the City and you see vehicles with flashing red, blue or yellow lights, please be aware that workers are present. Reduce your speed and allow extra space when passing the vehicles or accident scene, where it is safe to do so.
The City of Cranbrook is committed not only to the safety of the public but also to the safety of our staff. Thank you for remembering their safety as well as your own as you drive through construction zones or accident scenes.
