Cornwall, Ontario – The Cornwall Community Police Service’s Traffic Action Plan for the month of September will consist of targeted enforcement of Speeding within the School Zones. Police Officers will target motor vehicles that are found speeding within the School Zones in the City of Cornwall. The Cornwall Community Police will also be looking for any other infractions that might occur in these areas.
Obey the maximum speed limit posted on signs along our roads and highways, but always drive at a speed that will let you stop safely. As a general rule, drive at the same speed as traffic around you without going over the speed limit. Speeding within the Community Safety Zones may result in fines being as much as double in price as opposed to speeding in other parts of the city.
Remember the following when driving:
Lower your speed in bad weather, in heavy traffic or in a construction zone;Slow down when driving at night, especially on unlit roads;Follow at a safe distance, at least two seconds behind the vehicle in front of you.
If you are charged for speeding at 50 km/h over the speed limit, police will suspend your licence and impound your vehicle at the roadside. If you are found in contravention of these violations, it will cost you money and with some infractions demerit points. To find a list of all fines please refer to the Ontario Highway Traffic Act at www.e-laws.gov.on.ca.
