Road Safety – Traffic Blitz

This week, members of the Traffic Unit will be out in full force conducting enforcement throughout the Municipality, specifically looking for drivers using their cell phones, motorists not wearing their seat belts, aggressive driving and any other offences that may cause a driver to be distracted.

“As part of our three pillars of commitment to the citizens of Chatham-Kent, we will be focusing our efforts this week on driving behaviours that may result in deaths or injuries on our roads, stated Sgt. Jim Lynds of the Traffic Unit.

“This initiative is designed to help change dangerous driving behaviours. We would rather people alter their unsafe driving habits on our local roads through educational campaigns than our enforcement initiatives.”

Chatham-Kent Police Service officials allege: On January 30, 2020 police responded to a theft of two stainless steel sinks and conveyor belt from a business on Adelaide Street.

Total value of the theft was estimated at $8,500.
