The Brantford Police Service makes educating the public in safe driving practices a road safety priority. An essential part of our job is to save lives and reduce injuries on our roadways. Our ongoing enforcement initiatives focus on impaired driving, aggressive driving, distracted driving and speeding. These behaviours endanger drivers, passengers, all road users and pedestrians at risk of serious or fatal injury collisions.
During the week of Monday, July 27 to Sunday, August 3, 2020 BPS Traffic Unit will be conducting enforcement in regards to vehicles making unreasonable and unnecessary noise.
Leading up to this week, the BPS Traffic Unit will be conducting public education in an effort to promote safe driving behaviours and ensure motorists are aware of the rules of the road.
The Highway Traffic Act of Ontario indicates that a person having control of a vehicle shall not "make unreasonable noise, and a driver of any motor vehicle shall not permit any unreasonable amount of smoke to escape from their motor vehicle, nor shall such driver at any time cause the motor vehicle to make any unnecessary noise.” This will include any driver who squeals the tires to a motor vehicle or rev’s the vehicle engine and draws attention to those in proximity.
The local roadways are to be shared and enjoyed by everyone, please keep this in mind when operating a motor vehicle.
The Brantford Police Service is committed to increase public compliance with safe driving in order to prevent collisions, save lives and reduce injuries on our roads.
