Ottawa Police : Canada Road Safety Week , Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth

Ottawa injury lawyer David Hollingsworth supports Ottawa Police Initiativeottawapolice

As an Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer, I applaud and support the efforts made by the Ottawa Police to make our Ottawa streets a safer place….The Police Service will participate in Canada Road Safety Week which runs from May 16  to May 23. In 2010, there were 30 fatal car accidents that resulted  in the deaths of 34 people in the Ottawa community.  Consequently, the Ottawa Police have made traffic safety a high priority through various initiatives.  One program the Ottawa Police have put in place is the  RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) Programs during the evenings of Thursday May 19th and Friday May 20th.  The RIDE Program in Ontario  is led by the police community which runs all year long and involves random police spot checks where vehicles are stopped and drivers are checked for impaired driving.

Police are also actively engaged in Project E.R.A.S.E. (Eliminate Racing Activity on Streets Everywhere) a collaborative effort of 22 police services, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment whose goal is to change poor driver behavior through education and strategic enforcement.  Sadly, since 1999 48 people have been killed in Ontario as a result of street racing activities . In addition, excessive speed continues to be the leading contributing factor in fatal car accidents.

Ottawa Police focus on Canada’s Road Safety Week

During Canada’s Road Safety Week, Ottawa police will focus on 4 issues:

  • Drinking and driving.
  •  Seat belts and child restraints.
  • Aggressive driving, driving at unsafe speeds, following too closely or running red lights and stop signs.
  • Distracted Driving

As an Ottawa personal injury lawyer and along with the Ottawa Police, encourage everyone on our roadways to work towards making our Ottawa roads and Ontario roads the safest in the world. Let’s do it Ottawa !
