Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…Ottawa Police and the City of Ottawa’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) are targetting Ottawa motorists performing unsafe lane changes and those who inappropriately use reserved lanes to help keep Ottawa’s roads safe. This will be the focus for April.
Ottawa Accidents and Unsafe Lane changes
Unsafe lane changes caused 1,130 accidents reported in 2010, resulting in one wrongful death and 111 personal injuries.
Ottawa Accidents and Ottawa Drivers Driving in Reserved Lanes
In 2010, Ottawa motorists traveling in the reserved transit lanes caused 27 accidents which resulted in personal injuries.
The Safer Roads Ottawa Program is a partnership between Ottawa Fire Services, Ottawa Paramedic Service, Ottawa Police Service, Ottawa Public Health and the Public Works Department. They are all dedicated to preventing or eliminating road deaths and serious personal injuries for all Ottawa people , through culture change, community engagement, and development of a sustainable safe transportation environment.
I commend them on their efforts and support these amazing initiatives. Let’s all do whatever we can to help reduce the number of Ottawa accidents and personal injuries.
