Canada Road Safety Week,
Tuesday, May 15, 2018 to Monday, May 21, 2018
Broadcast time: 05:59
Tuesday, May 15, 2018
Starting on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, and running until Monday, May 21, 2018, the Toronto Police Service will participate in Canada Road Safety Week.
Canada Road Safety Week is an annual collaborative effort by Canadian police services to target high-risk driving behaviour that puts pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, passengers and other vulnerable road-users at risk.
This initiative is 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 to save lives and reduce injuries on our roads.
To accomplish this, the Toronto Police Service will focus its efforts on the “Big 4” contributors to killed or seriously injured (KSI) collisions. These include speeding, distracted driving, impaired driving, and aggressive driving behaviour.
Our message is clear: drivers have the ability to make the roads safer for all road-users by reducing speed, eliminating distractions and considering others before yourself.
