Coquitlam RCMP officers and volunteers are teaming up with ICBC to educate all pedestrians, but especially adults, on how to stay safe in the darker, wetter months of Standard Time.

ICBC statistics show that, in this province, up to 43 percent of collisions involving a pedestrian happen between October and January. The ICBC numbers also show that people between the ages of 26 and 55 are most at risk of getting hurt.

That’s why on November 7th, RCMP officers, staff and volunteers will be handing out free safety reflectors and tip cards at four locations: two during the morning commute and two more during lunch time. Members of the media are welcome to attend.

When and where:
