Weekly RCMP Report

            Staff Sergeant Darren Simons would like to reiterate the importance of following bicycle laws: “There’s been too many people that just go through stop signs as if they didn’t exist. I’d hate to see repeat offenders be ticketed even before they have their driver’s licences. Follow the Traffic Safety Act and talk to your kids about how to properly ride their bike around town.”

            The Carlyle detachment of the RCMP responded to a variety of calls between Thursday, April 26, and the morning of Thursday, May 3.
