Nov.: Road Safety Month
November is Road Safety Month in the NWT, with Nov. 21 the National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims. The Buckle Up program raises awareness of seatbelt safety, the Watch Out campaign reminds drivers to be aware of bison on the road and R U Prepared helps people expect the unexpected. The government believes all of these campaigns have had a positive effect on road safety. In addition, the distracted driving laws implemented on Jan. 1, 2012 are likely playing a part.
