Now that our local schools are back in session, Const. Warren Ning is back on duty.
Const. Warren Ning was created at a local print shop, and his real life doppelganger works for the Kelowna RCMP Municipal Traffic Section. This section, along with other members of the Kelowna RCMP will be routinely patrolling the school zones in our community.
In an effort to slow speeders, a handful of these reflective, bright-green-attired figures, affixed to portable carts, will make their rounds of schools throughout the district again this year, said Sgt. Mark Booth, unit commander for the Kelowna RCMP Municipal Traffic Section.
If you’re driving too fast in our school zones, you have to ask if the officer you see is cutout or the real deal.
School zones are in effect 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on school days. The minimum fine for speeding in a school zone is $196.
We are dedicated to ensuring the safety of our students. Wherever you’re going, it isn’t worth risking the safety of a child. So slow down and drive safely, reminds Sgt Booth.
