Region of Peel – Road safety is everyone’s responsibility. Peel Regional Police is committed to lowering the number of deaths and injuries on our roads. A balance of education and enforcement initiatives, while working with community members and road safety partners, can make a difference.
As the summer months fade away and we begin to see cooler temperatures, the sun rises later on in the morning and it begins to get darker earlier on at the end of the day. This impacts all road users, especially when it comes to visibility and being seen if you are walking, cycling or driving to your destination.
On Friday, September 25, 2020, Peel Regional Police have partnered again with Oxford Properties, Sheridan College, Mississauga Transit, City of Mississauga and Go Transit to educate all road users travelling in and around the Square One area, on how they can do their part to keep themselves and other road users safe.
Drivers can pledge to give their full attention while driving, slow down and to obey the rules of the road. Cyclists can pledge to adhere to the rules of the road including all traffic signs and signals and to clearly communicate their intentions by using hand signals. Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable of road users and are reminded that they play the biggest role in ensuring their own safety; they can pledge to be fully aware, at all times, of their own actions and the movement of vehicles in their vicinity. It is imperative that cyclists, pedestrians and motorists alike be extra vigilant around school zones, intersections, crosswalks and public transit stops.
