Road Safety Week:
Canada Road Safety Week is an enforcement-driven initiative led by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP), and more specifically by the CACP’s Traffic Safety Committee. It is designed to increase public compliance with safe driving measures in order to save lives and reduce injuries on our roads.
This road safety awareness campaign is part of the broader Canada’s Road Safety Strategy 2025, which aims to make Canada’s roads the safest in the world. To this end, the campaign is focused on behaviours that put drivers, passengers, pedestrians and other vulnerable road users most at risk:
- drug impaired driving
- alcohol impaired driving
- fatigue impaired driving
- distracted driving
- aggressive driving
- driving without a seatbelt
The Brockville is committed to road safety. There will be extra traffic patrols this weekend.
