York Regional Police would like to remind citizens to use the on line reporting of unsafe driving through the Road Watch Program. Road Watch is a community driven program that provides citizens with a means to report dangerous or unlawful driver behaviour. Instances of speeding, unsafe lane changes, disobeying traffic lights and stop signs are some typical types of behaviors that qualify for a Road Watch submission.
To access the Road Watch on line reporting, please go to yrp.ca and follow the links. Once a submission is received by York Regional Police, the information will be reviewed by a police officer and, if deemed appropriate, a letter will be sent to the owner of the vehicle outlining the date, time and location of the incident. The letter will also include important messages encouraging the owner to ensure all who drive their vehicles do so in a safe and responsible manner.
If you wish to remain anonymous you can report the driver to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS), online at www.1800222tips.com or you can text your tip to 274637(CRIMES) and start your text message with the work YORK.
Together we can help keep our roads safe!
