Estevan Police confirmed that they have received a report of a vehicle on the new pathway system that snakes around Estevan.

The pathways were completed earlier this year and are only supposed to be used by people who are either on foot or on a bike.

"We remind people, do not drive on these," said Sgt. Evan Handley with EPS. "These are brand new paths, these are meant for walking, biking, and not for use by vehicles, or ATVs, or motorbikes, so please remain off of them."

Handley added that anyone who sees a vehicle on the path should report it to police immediately, with a vehicle description if possible.

The city has placed temporary concrete barriers up at different entry points in an effort to prevent vehicles from accessing the paths.

The city also has signs that indicate what and who the path is intended for, but with the ground being frozen, have not been able to install them yet.

Although bikes are permitted, the paths were designed for people on foot.

"These are designed as walking paths only," said Rod March, the Manager of Leisure Services, Parks and Facilities with the city. "They're not designed as a bike riding path, they're not designed for any kind of wheeled type of activity, because obviously the turns and the hills and everything else for that kind of design is totally different. So these are walking paths, and we need people to understand that and use some common sense."

March added that early in the construction phase there were a few reports of vehicles driving on the pathway, which may have led to some of the confusion with people believing they were roads instead of walking paths.
