Cornwall, ON – Throughout the month of November, the Cornwall Police Service (CPS) will be focusing on intersection safety as part of its monthly traffic initiative.

During the campaign, officers will be continuing to enforce intersection-related violations, such as improper turns, failing to stop for amber lights, failing to stop for red lights and stop sign violations.

“Intersections can be busy and high-volume area for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists,” said Constable Patrick Depratto of the Traffic Unit. “Motorists who fail to slow down and abide by the traffic control lights or signs in place endanger other road users and increase the risk of a collision occurring.”

Enhancing traffic safety is a major objective within the CPS Strategic Plan. As such, monthly safety initiatives have been developed to keep the public informed and promote safer roadways and bike paths. These initiatives will be carried out by the Traffic Unit, as well as Community Patrol Officers.

“A safer Cornwall for all to enjoy.”
