Surrey

Surrey RCMP is reminding the public to be vigilant on our roads following three recent serious collisions, two of which tragically involved pedestrian fatalities.

In just under 48 hours, Surrey RCMP responded to three serious motor vehicle collisions involving pedestrians. Two people died, and a third person is currently in the hospital in critical condition, with life-threatening injuries.

At this time of year road conditions can be challenging for all road users. Low light conditions combined with fog and rainfall creates poor visibility for drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists.
Surrey RCMP is urging all drivers to slow down and drive appropriately for current conditions, and is reminding pedestrians to increase their visibility by wearing bright colours or reflective materials.

We all have a role to play in making our streets safer for all road users, says Corporal Elenore Sturko, Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer. With darker days and inclement weather, combined with the busy holiday season, we encourage you to give yourself extra time to get where you need to be and stay alert.
