NWPD goes out in full force
New Westminster police will be out in full force during the Thanksgiving weekend as it participates in the national Operation Impact campaign to make Canada's roads the safest in the world.
The campaign is an effort to change behaviours that put drivers, passengers and other road users at risk. The NWPD will be conducting enhanced enforcement of impaired driving, seat belt use and all aspects related to aggressive and distracted driving.
"Carelessness behind the wheel is often one of the main contributing factors in serious motor vehicle collisions, which can result in life-changing injuries or death," said Chief Const. Dave Jones. "Police agencies across the country are collaborating on this project because they know that the engagement of the driving public is essential to safer streets and highways."
