Peterborough Police Part of Thanksgiving Weekend National Traffic Safety Campaign

This Thanksgiving weekend the Peterborough Police Service is once again participating in Operation Impact, a national traffic enforcement and education initiative led by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police aimed at making Canada’s roads the safest in the world by 2025.

The project targets the “fatal four” offences that put drivers, passengers, other road users and pedestrians at most risk: Distracted driving; impaired driving; speeding and lack of seatbelts.

“Our focus is both enforcement and education. There is no excuse for any of these offences that put people’s lives at risk on a daily basis,” says Sergeant Jeff Chartier, Peterborough Police Service Traffic Management Unit.

“We want everyone to have a safe and happy long weekend. Please keep 100 per cent of your attention on the road 100 per cent of the time.”
