May 16: SAFE Roads Campaign Launched


The annual SAFE Roads campaign kicked off, reminding drivers to slow down when driving past road construction projects and when sharing the road with emergency workers, such as firefighters, hydro workers, paramedics and police officers. A radar speed marker recently set up in a construction zone showed that most drivers were over the posted speed limit—some by as much as 20 km an hour. The SAFE Roads campaign includes billboard ads featuring the message, “This is my workplace. Slow down.”
