Warning drivers of upcoming school zones with flashing lights and adding additional signage around high-speed intersections are just some of the ways mayoral candidate Jenny Motkaluk wants to improve traffic enforcement.
If elected, Motkaluk says she would also stop enforcing reduced speed zones around schools on statutory holidays.
“Drivers can’t follow the rules if they don’t know what the rules are,” she said. “That’s why I will put better signage in key areas like school zones and high-speed intersections.”
Another idea Motkaluk has is to install warning flashers to warn drivers of impending red lights at select intersections.
Motkaluk would also allocate some of the city’s traffic ticket revenue for road safety improvement.
