People who drive off-highway vehicles and other vehicles in unsafe ways are again advised by Big Lakes County council to be responsible.

At its regular meeting Aug. 11, council accepted suggestions from an Enilda resident at a previous meeting for information.

“Council continues to prioritize public education and include traffic enforcement in our annual priority list to the RCMP,” the rest of the recommendation states.

Council also passed a motion by Grouard Councillor Fern Welch to prepare a bylaw to change the speed limits to be the same in all five hamlets in the county. The proposed bylaw will be presented at an upcoming council meeting.

Enilda and Grouard still have the standard speed limit of 50 km/h as stated in the speed limit bylaw.
