Starting on Wednesday May 18th and ending May 24th 2011, The Windsor Police Service will be participating in a nationwide project called the “Canada Road Safety Week Project” which is sponsored by Transport Canada. This project was developed by the Traffic Committee of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, in conjunction with several organizations focused on road safety.
One of the high priority goals for the Windsor Police Service is to reduce collisions and injuries through enforcement, and education; to eliminate aggressive driving , impaired driving and distracted driving, so that the citizens of Windsor and Essex County can drive, cycle and walk in safety on our streets and highways. This project is an enforcement -driven initiative designed to increase public compliance with safe driving measures and, ultimately, to save lives.
The focus during Canada Road Safety Week is on behaviours that reduce risks for drivers, passengers and other road users: sober and alert driving, seat belt use, and refraining from all aspects of aggressive driving.
