Local Mounties will be out in full force over the next few weeks as 'safe roads' are one of this year's priorities.
Corporal Jay Peden with the Olds RCMP detachment advises the public to be diligent in watching out for pedestrians and children on bicycles at crosswalks as more people get out to enjoy the warmer weather. He adds motorists need to be especially aware around the skatepark area as well as other parks or playgrounds around town.
On a related note, at approximately 4pm on May 28th RCMP were called to the scene at 54th street and 50th avenue near the bowling alley in Olds. A male youth on a bike was struck by a black Cadillac Escalade. Police say the youth suffered non-life threatening injuries. They ask anyone who may have information about the collision to contact the Olds RCMP detachment.
