With the long weekend around the corner, Coquitlam RCMP are asking everyone to slow down and enjoy every minute of it. For the next few weeks, Coquitlam RCMP Traffic Services, Tri Cities Speed Watch volunteers and ICBC will be teaming up to focus on high-risk drivers during their awareness campaign which launched on May 15th.

We want to reduce crashes and help drivers understand the risks of high-risk driving behaviours including speeding said Kathleen Nadalin, local ICBC road safety coordinator. Be realistic about travel times to reduce your risk of crashing. Slow down and keep your distance between vehicles to arrive at your destination safely.

This weekend has consistently proven to be a busy weekend for crashes and injuries in B.C.

Last year, 330 people were injured in 1,200 crashes throughout the Lower Mainland over the Victoria Day long weekend.
