Road safety week in full force

SURREY – Surrey RCMP traffic cops and Delta Police will be stepping up their enforcement during Canada Road Safety Week, which runs until Monday.

Officers will be hunting for and ticketing aggressive drivers, speeders, distracted drivers and motorists not wearing their seatbelts. They’ll also be on the lookout for impaired drivers.

Meanwhile, the Surrey RCMP has wrapped up its “Think of Me” school zone safety program. The initiative was launched in April and saw 12 schools zones patrolled and more than 8,700 vehicles checked. Students handed out safety warning messages they’d made to more than 960 drivers. All told, there was one drug seizure made, and one motorist received a 24-hour driving suspension.
