Launch of the awareness campaign on reckless behaviour and speeding in the vicinity of the two Chelsea elementary schools.
The project is an initiative of the SAAQ in partnership with the Municipality of Chelsea, the MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais Public Security Service and the Grand Boisé School and Chelsea Elementary School.
This is a two-part campaign that will take place over two years.
Motorists will be able to see giant signs near schools reminding them to be safe. Obviously, our police officers will be present and pro-active in order to encourage drivers to reduce their speed first.
Since the beginning of the school year, our police officers have issued more than 30 fines in the school zones of the Chelsea sector.
Eventually, we would like to extend the campaign to all our other municipalities.
