Regina drivers are being asked to show some courtesy to pedestrians during this warm stretch of weather by not splashing them with water or mud as they go through a puddle.
Police spokesperson Elizabeth Popowich says doing that is actually against the law in Regina as Section 21 says a motorist should not splash a pedestrian with a vehicle by projecting water or mud at them. She does admit though it can be tough to prosecute as most people aren’t thinking about getting a drivers licence when they get an unexpected and unpleasant surprise.
Popowich is telling drivers to be aware of their surroundings and not give pedestrians an unwanted spray.
One man went to social media after his eight month old son was sprayed Monday by a passing motorist as he walked down Elphinstone near Mosaic Stadium getting soaked as a result.
