Canada Road Safety Week


You can expect to see an increase in police out on the roads for the rest of the week.

Canada Road Safety Week begins today and ends on Monday. The goal of the initiative led by the Canadian Association of the Chiefs of Police is to focus on safe driving habits.

Each day of the seven-day campaign will focus on a different road safety risk factor.

Some of the themes for the week include alcohol-impaired driving, distracted driving, and aggressive driving.

Canada has one of the highest motor vehicle fatality rates among high-income countries in the world at 5.2 per population of 100,000. Impaired driving is the leading criminal cause of death in Canada.
