September 4th, 2018

It’s back to school this week for students and with that, the Morden Police Service would like to remind everyone of the increased traffic on the streets including cyclists and pedestrians.   It is a reminder for everyone to allow some extra time to get to and from your destination.   Be aware of the pedestrian crosswalks and corridors and generally allow for cyclists and pedestrians crossing at all intersections.  Extra caution should always be taken traveling in and around school zones.  A reminder that the reduced school speed zones are in effect as of September 1st and are clearly marked at locations in and around the schools.  Be aware of school buses preparing to stop as well.  Motorists are required to stop when the emergency lights on school buses are activated, both following and approaching school buses.  Drivers are reminded that they are to stop no less than 5 metres from the school bus when its lights are activated and remain stopped until the lights are shut off.  One must wait until the emergency lights are deactivated before travel may be resumed.  We also ask students walking or cycling to obey the traffic laws as well. Cyclists must stop at the stop signs and use hand signals so motorists know which way they are turning.  Please cycle in single file along the right hand curb and allow vehicles stopping distance before crossing the roadway.  Students walking to and from school must use the sidewalks where available to avoid vehicles having to drive around them. When using the designated crosswalks, please allow traffic time to stop before you step off the curb to cross the street.

The crossing guards at our schools play an important role in the safety of the students coming to and leaving school.   We ask that motorist be extra cautious in the school zones and help keep our community safe!  Parents are also asked to avoid stopping in the middle of the streets or double-parking when dropping their children off at the schools.  This creates a hazard for both your child and the motorist when vehicles are stopping in the middle of the roadway and students are having to walk through traffic and parked vehicles.  Please use the designated “drop off” zones on 4th Street by Ecole Morden Middle School.

Another area of concern that motorists are reminded of is railway crossings.   The cross buck symbol means drivers must yield to trains. And flashing red lights mean drivers must stop. Never stop within a railway crossing or with any portion of your vehicle over a track. Before you enter the crossing area, make sure you can clear the tracks. Wait until the signal lights are off and the crossing arm is all the way up before proceeding. Trains can appear to be travelling slower than they really are, so trying to “beat the train” is extremely dangerous. It’s also important to make sure there is not a second train approaching from the same or opposite direction. Failing to stop or comply with a traffic control device signalling the proximity or passing of a train carries a fine of $298.00.
