October 4, 2018   ·   0 Comments

Shelburne Police Service will be participating in a national traffic safety campaign on Thanksgiving weekend.  From October 5th through the 8th Shelburne police officers will be focusing on motorists whose driving behaviours fall into the four main categories of:

• Impaired driving

• Failure to use seat belts

• Speeding and/or aggressive driving

• Distracted driving

This campaign is to remind drivers and passengers across Canada to consciously consider safety whenever they get behind the wheel. Shelburne police are asking that everyone wear their seatbelts and those who travels with children in the car ensures that infants, toddlers and children are properly restrained in vehicles according to their age and size. Shelburne police also expects that those who chose to drink alcohol or use drugs will refrain from impaired driving and make plans for safe transportation.  As well, please pay attention to the road at all times while driving and leave yourself lots of time to get to your destination.
