Richmond RCMP increasing Highway 91 checks this month

A total of 282 crashes along Highway 91 in Richmond were reported in 2023.
Police pulled over a distracted driver during an enforcement operation.

Motorists travelling along Highway 91 will notice more Richmond RCMP officers on the road in July.

The police's road safety department is increasing enforcement to remind drivers to slow down and avoid using their phones while driving.

This month's enforcement is due to an "increase in collisions and traffic complaints," said Richmond RCMP on social media platform X.

ICBC crash data shows that Highway 91, between Shell Road and Highway 91A, had 282 crashes in 2023, an increase of 69 crashes from 2022.

The crashes in 2023 resulted in 163 casualties.

Most crashes last year along the East-West connector occurred at the intersection of Alderbridge Way, Highway 91 and Shell Road, with 66 crashes. This was followed by Highway 91 near the No. 6 Road on and off-ramps, with 43 crashes.

Drivers are advised to slow down and drive carefully.
