About

Traffic Safety through both public education and enforcement has always been a priority for the Cornwall Community Police Service. As such we proudly introduced to the community its Traffic Specialist Unit in March of 2003.

The Traffic Unit's mandate is to investigate all fatal motor vehicle collisions, collisions resulting in serious or life threatening injuries, serious hit and run collisions as well as the technical reconstruction of collision scenes. Members of the unit also work in conjunction with the Ministry of Transportation to conduct safety inspections on trucks and passenger vehicles.

Tips

Reduce your risks

  • Practice courtesy at all times. Share the road. Don't cut people off or make sudden lane changes.
  • Obey traffic control devices. A stop sign means come to a complete STOP.
  • Be cautious when approaching intersections.
  • A yellow light means clear the intersection - NOT try to beat the light.
  • Make yourself visible. Day or night, always turn your headlights on, use your running lights, and make sure your tail lights are working.
  • Use your signal lights so others on the road know what you're going to do.
  • Don't follow too close.
