Alberta RCMP is reminding drivers that speeding is a high-risk behavior that actively puts other road users, community members, and emergency responders unnecessarily in danger.
Officials are asking drivers to pay attention to local signage and be mindful that speed limits may change when personnel are working roadside.
Community members are reminded to keep themselves up to date with OHV bans and restrictions in their area and familiarize themselves with the Off-highway Vehicle Regulation in Alberta which outlines various offenses. RCMP says the lack of a spark arrest device and the accumulation of debris around a hot exhaust system presents an increased risk for fire.
RCMP additionally ask community members in all areas affected by wildfires to familiarize themselves with the following:
- Forest and Prairie Protection (Ministerial) Regulation
- Forest and Prairie Protection Act
- Forest and Prairie Protection Regulation
- Provincial Parks (General) Regulation
