The Regina Police Service “Traffic Focus of the Month” for October is Infractions at Traffic Intersections. This month, the Regina Police Service hopes to raise awareness of common infractions that occur in intersections and encourages motorists to practice safe driving habits. Police members will also direct enforcement efforts at such infractions through the “Traffic Focus of the Month”
Police remind motorist to comply with the posted speed limit and follow other traffic at a safe distance. Do not attempt lane changes in or near intersections, and always drive defensively. Fourteen intersections in Regina have been identified as the sites of frequent and serious motor vehicle collisions. Driving behaviours like: failing to prepare to stop at amber lights, failing to come to a complete stop at stop signs, and failing to yield right of way to oncoming traffic when turning, are a few of the factors that contribute to major collisions at intersections.
As part of the “Traffic Focus of the Month”, strategic enforcement initiatives targeting infractions at intersections will be conducted. The Regina Police Service commends those motorists who practice safe driving habits and encourages all drivers to respect the rules of the road. Remember, being more cautious at intersections will decrease the number of major collisions and makeReginaa safer community for all.
