First day of school and where does one find our photo radar set up? Not at the school zones where it was crazy with vehicles pulling in, pulling out, etc. Not at any of the multiple residential sites that have large volumes of children that would be riding their bikes to school, walking to school, crossing busy streets, etc.. No, they were set up at the UFA Card Lock parking lot, just across the road from LUBEX [Jiffy Lube] or officially known as Zone M402.
We drove by at 8:10 a.m. in the morning and there they were sitting, and we assume taking pictures of north-bound [traffic]. We drove back at 8:30 and yes the photo radar vehicle was still sitting there. Causes one to wonder hmm – safety versus revenue. Which is it?
Out of curiosity – we drove around all the schools to see WHO were protecting the safety of our children and we were so happy to see the Community Peace Officer cruising around Morinville Public School and an RCMP parked by the Notre Dame School.
Thank you to the CPOs and RCMP for the boots on the ground.
