School zone safety: Transport Canada National Collision database states September to November are the worst months for a young pedestrian to be injured by a motor vehicle. Driving tips to keep kids safe from the Canada Safety Council: 

  • Reduce your speed.
  • Stop for school buses with flashing lights and extended arm.
  • Obey crossing guards.
  • Never overtake in the vicinity of a school zone.
  • Avoid U-Turns.
  • Give cyclists a wide berth.
  • Shoulder check.
  • Leave extra time.
  • If you observe reckless driving, call the police.
  • Choose public transit (one less vehicle on the road). 
  • If you are driving your children to school, drop them off from the passenger side and walk a block to avoid vehicle congestion. 

Beaumont residents are encouraged to view the RCMP Crime Mapping tool and can access the map through the City of Beaumont’s website at https://www.beaumont.ab.ca/532/Beaumont-RCMP-Crime-Map
