Road Safety – Traffic Blitz
This week, members of our Traffic Unit will be out in full force conducting enforcement throughout the Municipality, specifically looking for drivers using their cell phones, motorists not wearing their seat belts, aggressive driving and any other offences that may cause a driver to be distracted.
Sgt Jim Lynds of the Traffic Unit says, “As part of our three pillars of commitment to the citizens of Chatham-Kent, we will be focusing our efforts this week on driving behaviours that may result in deaths or injuries on our roads. This initiative is designed to help change dangerous driving behaviours. We would rather people alter their unsafe driving habits on our local roads through educational campaigns than our enforcement initiatives.”
