Today’s School Zone Safety lesson is brought to you by the Letter “U”, and a recent increase in illegal U-Turns in Regina school zones.
1) U cannot make a U-turn in a school zone.
2) If U do, U are breaking a law: the Regina Traffic Bylaw.
3) If U do, U could put nearby pedestrians and school children at risk.
4) U also risk getting into a collision that carries the possibility of injury/property damage to U or others.
5) U could also get a ticket.
6) If U get a ticket, U may have to pay hundreds of dollars, which means you have less $$ for things U really wanted to buy.
7) Remember U are a role model to other drivers and school-age children, who will be parents and drivers someday.
8) U can find the information prohibiting U-turns in school zones in Regina’s Traffic Bylaw, section 17(3). It applies to all of us. Including U.
9) U, me, all of us – we have a role to play in keeping our children safe.
We hope U like our playful approach but also appreciate our serious message.
-From Ur friends at Regina Police Service.
