  Students Reward Safe Drivers

Aug 15, 2008 14:50 ET

DRPS Youth in Policing students were out rewarding drivers Aug. 12 to thank them for practicing safe driving habits.

The students helped conduct radar enforcement on Hwy. 115/35 and on Taunton Rd. in Clarington. Any motorist who was caught driving the speed limit was given a reward from the students. “This has been a great opportunity for the students,” said Cst. Keith Richards. “Most of them are G1 drivers and it is important for them to create safe driving habits now.”

This initiative comes on the heels of a deadly weekend on Durham Region’s roadways. Three people have been killed and two were seriously injured in motor vehicle collisions.

The Traffic Services Branch would like to remind all motorists to slow down and drive carefully, especially during wet road conditions. The warmer temperatures also mean there are more cyclists on the roadways and to pay extra attention while getting to and from your destination.
