Enderby motorists urged to watch out for pedestrians

A pedestrian-activated crossing has been installed on Salmon Arm Drive, west of M.V. Beattie Elementary School.

The City of Enderby is reminding residents that a pedestrian-activated crossing has been installed on Salmon Arm Drive, west of M.V. Beattie Elementary School.

Pedestrians and drivers are advised to use extra caution as traffic adjusts to the change.

“Parents are encouraged to review safe crossing practices with their children which includes waiting until the vehicle has come to a complete stop and making eye contact with the driver prior to crossing,” states a city release.

“When motorists see flashing lights they must come to a complete stop.  As there are often school children on Salmon Arm Drive and Knight Avenue, motorists must pay extra attention at all times.”

An RCMP officer will make a presentation to M.V. Beattie students on crosswalk safety in late October.
