RCMP across the country are ramping up their campaign to make Canadian roads safer this week. Road Safety week is a police initiative aimed at reminding people about the risks of things like distracted, impaired, and aggressive driving. Corporal Roy Kennedy with the Grande Prairie detachment says they want drivers to know what it is they are looking for, and what kinds of behaviors will land you a ticket, or worse.
“We’ve had way too many collisions and fatalities over the past number of years. So we’re going to be focusing on behaviors such as speeding, improper lane changes, distracted driving and impaired driving. So all those attitudes and behaviors that are leading to these collisions.”
Road Safety week is part of Transport Canada’s strategy to make our country’s roads the safest in the world by 2015.
