GOOD DRIVER DAYS

The Belleville Police Service, Insurance Brokers Association and Canadian Tire Belleville are please to announce Good Driver Days for the remainder of the month of August. In the past, BPS has worked to identify aggressive driving behaviour and issue offence notices as part of targeted enforcement initiatives. In an interesting twist, we will be observing for specific driving behaviours within the city and rewarding drivers who are demonstrating courteous driving. We will be looking for drivers who are driving at or below the speed limit, who come to a complete stop at stop signs, who follow from a safe distance, etc. These drivers will be issued a complimentary car wash as a reward for their conscientious driving behaviour.This initiative is another great example of how our corporate citizens come together to help the Service address road safety. The timing of this initiative is perfect as many children are finishing their summer holidays and prepare to go back to school. This is a very positive reminder of how important road safety is for our community.
