AUGUST TRAFFIC ACTION PLAN

 

Cornwall, ON- The Cornwall Community Police Service’s Traffic Action Plan for the month of August will consist of targeted enforcement on Distracted Driving. Police Officers will target Drivers of motor vehicles that are found to be Distracted while Driving within the City of Cornwall.

 

What’s with Distracted Driving

 

Many drivers tend to view driving, especially in familiar environments, as a simple everyday task that requires minimal attention. But collisions often occur when unexpected situations happen in familiar environments. Distracted driving is engaging in any activity other than driving while operating a motor vehicle.

 

Potential distractions include:

 Using handheld devices

 selecting music

 talking to passengers

 using GPS

 reading maps, ads, etc.

 fixing hair, putting on make-up or jewellery

 eating or drinking

 making lists

 tending to children or pets

 staring at pedestrians, collisions, etc.

 daydreaming or thinking about something stressful

 reaching for items in bag, glove box, pockets or from behind seats

 

A recent study shows that when drivers take their eyes off the road for more than 2 seconds their crash risk doubles.

 

Here’s the law

 

In Ontario, It is illegal for drivers to talk, text, type, dial, or email using hand-held cell phones and other hand-held communications and entertainment devices.

 

All drivers may use hand-held devices to call 9-1-1

 

If you need to use your cell phone in an emergency — a situation that could result in a danger to your safety or the safety of others if it is not corrected without delay —

consider the following tips:

 Pull over safely if conditions allow.

 Keep emergency calls as brief as possible.

 Alert the caller that you are on the road.

 End conversations immediately if driving conditions or situations become hazardous (for example, bad weather, roadway construction, high-speed or high-volume traffic).

 Be alert to situations on the road where a cell phone’s radio frequency and electronics may be potentially harmful such as: construction zones where blasting is occurring, or at gas stations/fuelling

areas.

 

A driver who uses a cell phone is 4 times more likely to be in a crash than drivers who are focused on the road.

 

Drivers who endanger others because of any distraction may also be charged with careless driving and on conviction, will automatically receive six demerit points, fines of up to $2,000 and/or a jail term of six months. In some cases, your licence may be suspended for up to two years. You may even be charged with dangerous driving (a criminal offence).

n the evening hours of June 14th, 2012, while on patrol on the St. Lawrence River, South Glengarry, Ontario, Cornwall Regional Task Force (CRTF) members observed a vessel heading eastbound in the main shipping channel.  Upon detection of police presence, the suspect vessel hid on the eastern side of Butternut Island.  In an unsuccessful attempt to flee police when CRTF members approached, the suspect vessel sustained motor damage.  Vessel occupants, Jason KING (age 47) and Alexander THOMPSON (age 24), both from Hogansburg, NY, were arrested and transported to RCMP Detachment for processing.  KING and THOMPSON were charged with being in possession of contraband cigarettes and failing to comply with their respective undertakings.  Seized during this incident were: 21′ Orca fiberglass vessel with an Evinrude 200 hp motor, and 50 cases of contraband cigarettes.
In the early morning hours of June 17th, 2012, CRTF members noted a suspicious vehicle travelling north on McConnell Avenue in the Cornwall’s north end.  Members followed this vehicle to a self-storage facility on McConnell Avenue.  Upon closer examination, members observed a male and a female standing beside an open storage locker.  Members on scene were able to observe in plain view a large amount of clothing in the couple’s possession.  After an initial investigation, the male, 52, and a female, 48, both from Cornwall, Ontario, were arrested for possible Copyright Act infringement and transported to Cornwall RCMP Detachment for processing.  Thousands of articles of clothing bearing brand names such as Harley-Davidson, Hurley, Billabong, Element, Adidas, to name a few, was seized during this incident.  Police believe the clothing to be counterfeit property.  As this investigation is ongoing, no charges have yet been filed.
On June 17th, 2012, at approximately 4:00 pm, CRTF members were called to Cornwall’s Port of Entry (POE), where CBSA members had arrested Skyler CROUSE (age 23), from Fort Covington, NY, for possession of unstamped tobacco products.  A search of the CROUSE’s vehicle resulted in 200 cartons of contraband cigarettes being seized.  He was turned over to CRTF members for processing and charged for being in possession of contraband cigarettes.  The conveyance along with the contraband product was seized during this investigation.

In the early morning hours of June 25th, 2012, while conducting surveillance in the Lancaster, Ontario area for possible smuggling activities, CRTF members observed an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) towing an enclosed cargo trailer travelling eastbound on the old Raisin River Campground Road.  This ATV, which was accompanied by a second ATV, was travelling at a high rate of speed without lights.  CRTF members assisted by the Lancaster OPP setup a check point at the intersection of Fraser Road and old Raisin River Campground Road to intercept the ATVs upon their return westbound.   A short time later, the ATV towing the cargo trailer was observed travelling westbound approaching Fraser Road followed by the second ATV not far behind.  The members activated their emergency lights of their marked police in order to intercept the suspects.
The driver of the first ATV accelerated towards members standing near their police vehicles and struck a fully marked police vehicle head on, sustaining extensive damage.  The driver fled the scene entering the wooded area but was located shortly thereafter by a RCMP canine. The driver was identified as Jonathan JASPER (age 21), from Williamstown, Ontario.  The driver of the second ATV was not apprehended however the ATV he was driving was recovered a short distance away from the incident.  Police checks conducted on both ATVs revealed that they had been reported stolen by their rightful owners.  JASPER was arrested and charged for the possession of unstamped tobacco, possession of property obtained by crime, assault police officer and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.  He was released from police custody on a Promise to Appear.  A total of 80 cases of contraband cigarettes, along with a Wells Cargo utility trailer, were seized.  The 2006 Polaris Sportsman 450 and the John Deere Gator were seized but will be turned over to the appropriate insurance company.
