The Alberta RCMP is promoting pedestrian safety in October.
Police said that in 2021, there were 224 pedestrian-involved collisions in Alberta RCMP jurisdiction, 23 of which resulted in fatalities, 49 in major injuries, and 145 with minor injuries.
In RCMP jurisdictions, pedestrian collisions occur more often during warmer weather between March and October.
“We want to ensure all road users, whether they are travelling by car or on foot, are safe on Alberta’s streets and highways,” explains Insp. Chris Romanchych, Alberta RCMP Traffic.
“Pedestrians are some of our most vulnerable road users. As such, we must take the appropriate measures and precautions to reduce any potential risks to their safety and well-being.”
