The County of Newell has received the Alberta Traffic Safety Fund Grant for 2017 to raise awareness about speeding and its direct correlation with public safety.
The County's Municipal Enforcements Department will mainly focus on 30km/hr (playground/school) and 50km/hr zones. The campaign is designed to promote both motorists and pedestrian safety in these areas by utilizing speed detection devices throughout the County to collect traffic data. The information collected will help the County of Newell Municipal Enforcement Department to get a better understanding of when and where higher traffic volume exists and when and where speeds are an issue.
This project will run from March 22, 2017, until September 22, 2017. To promote safety, education, and transparency to the public, we will be posting on our web page and throughout our social media pages when and where the signs will be placed.
