Sign placement altered for safety

Thank you, Tom Skoreyko, for bringing your concern forward about Red Deer First’s election signs in your letter to the editor. Citizen safety is one of our highest concerns and because of this we have already altered the configuration of our signs at a number of our other locations.

Citizen safety is one of our highest concerns and because of this we have already altered the configuration of our signs at a number of our other locations.

Just to be clear, all our sign placements are within municipal by-law approved areas. As well, obviously every candidate tries to locate their signs for the maximum impact; unfortunately, we never anticipated our positioning would be so effective as to literally take a driver’s attention from the road.

We will do our best to rearrange these signs to be less distracting. We encourage all citizens to drive safely during this election season and will continue to do our part to ensure this wherever possible.
