Nanaimo RCMP to host its next pedestrian safety event

Free reflective armbands to be handed out on Dec. 13

Dark and rainy nights can be a challenge for some motorists trying to navigate dully lit streets. Add pedestrians and cyclists wearing dark clothing into the mix and the results can be dangerous.

The Nanaimo RCMP is continuing a safety campaign designed to make pedestrians and cyclists more visible to motorists.

On Wednesday, Dec. 13, the Nanaimo RCMP will be holding their second pedestrian safety and awareness session at intersection of Bruce Avenue and Fifth Street between 1-4 p.m.

The event will see community policing volunteers, members from the RCMP and Telus ambassadors handing out free reflective armbands to pedestrians and cyclists and providing information to the public about the importance of being visible to motorists.
