Red Deer RCMP are asking for public assistance to identify those responsible for placing a number of traffic hazards on Taylor Drive and along 67th St. between 52nd Ave. and the Clearview Ridge neighbourhood that could have resulted in vehicle collisions and injury.

Shortly before 3 a.m. on March 23rd, RCMP on patrol identified and removed a number of hazards that had been placed in roadways and identified a number of locations where street signs had been removed.

Traffic hazards placed in the middle of busy roadways included a large metal garbage can and a large box in the middle of 67th St., east of the bridge.

Four street signs were removed at the intersection of 67th St. and Riverside Drive and were laid across the driving lanes. Traffic cones had been also been placed in driving lanes in that area.

More street signs had been removed in the area of 50th Ave. and 67th St. and laid in driving lanes, and a second set of traffic cones was placed in driving lanes on Taylor Drive, along with a street sign that had been removed from the Clearview neighbourhood.

The objects appeared to have been placed with the deliberate intention of causing collisions.

RCMP are asking anyone with information about these reckless and dangerous acts to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at
