Students Lecture Speeding Drivers with Safety Message

École Taché students Sam, Caitlyn and Danica were lecturing speeding drivers Friday afternoon as part of the Winnipeg Police Service’s “Talk or Ticket” initiative.

Police were targeting motorists with a heavy foot on Provencher Boulevard near Langevin Street, but were giving them the option of receiving a written offense, or something less expensive: A safety message from one of the participating sixth graders.

The idea was to educate drivers on slowing down near schools and playgrounds. The students selected to participate entered a writing contest within their school and submitted a written copy of the message they would be delivering to drivers in their English class. photo/WpgCameraMan
