Back to School Road Safety

By Constable Les Jones on September 4th, 2015 | Posted in Daily Media Releases

 

Broadcast time: 8:47 a.m.

Date: September 4, 2015

 

The Sarnia Police Service is reminding motorist that students will be returning to school next Tuesday September 8, 2015. At this time of year our city streets will be busier once again. Drivers should prepare for the return of school buses, crossing guards, a higher volume of children walking on the streets and parents dropping off and picking up their children.

Drivers need to be cautious and take extra care on the road. By modifying driving habits, motorist can affect pedestrian safety and reduce child pedestrian injuries.

Be aware of school zone signage and reduce your speed in school zones. New laws require motorist to wait until crossing guards are completely off the roadway before they can proceed.

Be patient. Children may cross the street slowly or change their mind and turn back. Give them ample time to cross safely. Give yourself extra travel time if you commute through school areas.

Watch for school buses. Traffic in both directions must stop for school buses with flashing overhead red lights activated and the stop arm activated. Failure to do so can result in a $490.00 fine.

If you are driving children to school, drop them off in a safe area away from traffic.

Be observant when approaching parked cars in a school area. Children are difficult to see between parked cars and may dart out into traffic. By scanning the area and reducing speed you allow greater reaction time.

Following these tips will assist drivers during this busy back to school time and help keep our kids safe.

On Friday August 28, 2015 just before 3:30 p.m. members of the Sarnia Police C.O.P.P.S Unit noticed a white GMC pickup truck on Mitton Street with improper plates. The truck had two different plates belonging to two different people displayed. The officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop, however, the male driver would not pull over. The pursuit continued in the area of Talfourd, Vidal and Campbell Streets before heading south on Indian Road. The truck was followed until it reached Lasalle Line before being called off in the interest of public safety.

Secondary to locating property in the pickup and conducting a further investigation, members of the Sarnia Police Service COPPS Unit were able to determine that property was stolen from a location in Lambton County and thus the accused in this matter was also charged with possession of stolen property under $5000 along with the original charges of dangerous driving, evading police and breaching his probation.
