to the Invermere RCMP on Friday afternoon of the August long weekend. Officers were working a speed trap at the 60 km crosswalk at the top of the #93 pass. The approaching high volumes of traffic caused unexpected, full stop, mid-highway congestion. Meanwhile, in Radium, not one officer was available for traffic control at the 4-way stop. Traffic was backed up through the tunnel, making many drivers grumpy and (+/-30 minutes) late. Both situations created danger and frustration. If safety is the main goal, more common sense and focus on community service are needed.
