A female complainant contacted Clearwater RCMP recently to report that her husband, who was traveling to Grand Prairie, had not arrived there by the time he should have.
Police advised the complainant that there was a road closure near Valemount due to a serious traffic incident. The road had been closed for approximately four hours.
Soon afterwards the female received a text from her husband advising that he was stuck in road closures and all was fine.
RCMP remind motorists to keep in touch with their families while traveling, keep your vehicles fuelled up in case of travel delays and carry an emergency kit with you in case you are in or come upon a motor vehicle incident.

Animal and neighbor complaints
RCMP have again received multiple calls regarding dog complaints in Clearwater and Vavenby.
Please have consideration for your neighbors and other members of the public when it comes to your personal pets. It is your responsibility to keep your animals on your property or on a lease when they are out in public. Failure to do so could lead to civil action taken against you and future court dates.
