Traffic safety day

More than 230 children younger than 15 were killed or injured as pedestrians or cyclists each year between 2010 and 2014 in Alberta.

Following too closely was listed as the most common driver error involving collisions with school buses.

During traffic safety days in Alberta this month, students will learn how to safely cross the street, ride the school bus and cycle by participating in interactive stations with traffic safety experts. Motorists are also reminded to take care in school zones and around buses.

Events are scheduled in Grande Prairie, Lac La Biche, New Norway, Onoway, Slave Lake, Wembley, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Calgary, Camrose and Edmonton.
