Locations of the volunteers will be posted along the sides of the highways to warn drivers of their presence.

“Please drive safely, make sure you’re paying attention and leave your phone alone,” said Sgt. Darrin Turnbull. “You can expect to see them on pretty much any highway here in the province of Alberta, trying to clean it up.”

The RCMP will also increase patrols across provincial highways to enforce traffic safety and prevent speeding in these areas.
