ROAD WATCH is a community based program that is utilized in many towns and cities in Ontario. It is aimed at making drivers more aware of their actions.
The program is run by volunteers who live in our community, and in conjunction with the Durham Regional Police Service. The ROAD WATCH program is active in Whitby, Clarington, Ajax and Pickering.
ROAD WATCH provides residents an opportunity to report dangerous and aggressive driving throughout the Durham Region. If you observe aggressive or dangerous driving, fill out a PDF version of our Citizen's Report Form and drop it off at one of our ROAD WATCH boxes (listed on the form.)
Aggressive driving may include:
- Excessive speeding,
- Failure to stop, and
- Any act that puts other drivers at a high risk of collision or injury.
If a driver is reported more than once, the police will contact that individual regarding the reports. Subsequent offences may result in enforcement action by the police depending on the severity of the incident.
You can contact Durham Region's ROAD WATCH by e-mail at Roadwatch@drps.ca. You can visit the Ajax/Pickering ROAD WATCH site at www.ajaxpickeringroadwatch.com. The following DRP officers can also be reached at (905) 579-1520:
