March 3 – 5, 2017 Incidents

Traffic Initiative

Over the weekend, Brockville Police had a traffic initiative targeting red lights and speeders at high traffic intersections in response to concerns raised in the community.

On Friday morning from 11am to 12 pm officers set up at the intersection of North Augusta Rd and Reynolds Drive and were happy to report no infractions during this time period.

Saturday officers switched their focus to the Stewart Boulevard corridor and monitored the intersections at Central Avenue, and Front Avenue. Highway Traffic Act charges were issued for using a cellphone, and failing to surrender a driver’s licence. Officers also gave 2 warnings for amber light infractions.

On Sunday, patrol officers focused further north on Stewart Blvd at Parkedale Ave when 6 charges were laid under the Highway Traffic Act, 2 for speeding, 1 for an unsafe lane change, 1 for an unlicensed driver, 1 for not wearing a seatbelt and 1 for not having an insurance card.

Distracted driving continues to be a problem. Officers report seeing several other motorists on their cell phones, however they were unable to get them pulled because they were dealing with other vehicles at the time.
