Waterloo Regional Police to Participate in 2022 Canada Road Safety Week

Canada Road Safety Week

For Immediate Release:  May 17, 2022

Waterloo Region, Ontario – The Waterloo Regional Police Service is pleased to participate in Canada Road Safety Week - a seven-day campaign focused on making Canada’s roads the safest in the world. 

The national enforcement campaign, which takes place from May 17, 2022, to May 23, 2022, aims to target behaviours that put drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and other vulnerable road users at risk.

“Road safety is a key priority of the Police Service. When you get behind the wheel, the decisions you make not only affect you, but the lives of everyone you share the road with,” said Bryan Larkin, Chief of Police. “It is vital that we all work together to keep our roads as safe as possible so we can save lives and reduce injuries.”

This year’s theme, Safer You. Safer Me., emphasizes that the decisions drivers make not only affect them, but also their passengers, other drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians. No excuse justifies unsafe driving behaviour. 

During the week, Waterloo Regional Police officers will be taking part in several enforcement efforts surrounding road safety initiatives.

Please, slow down, drive sober, put down the phone, and buckle up.

This is your community. This is your choice

Canada Road Safety Week is sponsored by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) and Transport Canada. This initiative is part of Canada’s Road Safety Strategy 2025, which has a goal of making Canada’s roads the safest in the world by 2025.
