Traffic safety is a major priority for the Cornwall Police Service (CPS). Residents have a reasonable expectation to feel safe as they travel on the roadways and bike paths in our city.
Issues related to road safety have been recognized as extremely important in our community.
As part of the CPS' commitment to creating a safer Cornwall, a Traffic Safety Plan was developed in 2018 to assist in ensuring the safety of everyone on our roadways. This includes all motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, with our goal being to reduce the amount of injuries and collisions within our community. The Traffic Safety Plan includes both, educational and enforcement components, and will provide a foundation for safer roadways. In the plan, monthly traffic safety initiatives are carried out by the Traffic Unit, as well as Community Patrol Officers.
