DESTRACTED DRIVING & YOUR SAFETY

Cornwall, ON- Distracting Driving is a problem that doesn’t seem to be going away. Although there is a law, everyday people can’t seem to put their cell phones down while driving. Stats show that you are 23% times more likely to be involved in a collision. Collisions occur within seconds of taking your eyes off the road. People that use a cell phone are distracted on average a minimum of 5 seconds which if you are travelling 50 km/h equals approximately half the length of a football field. Five seconds is a long time without looking at where you’re going. The faster you’re travelling, the greater distance you cover during each moment you’re distracted or your eyes are off the road.

The Cornwall Community Police Service Traffic Unit and Community Patrol members conducted a two hour traffic blitz on Tuesday, February 26th, 2013. As a result of the enforcement, over 15 drivers were stopped and charged for using hand-held devices while driving. Merely holding your phone can be subject to a charge under the Highway Traffic Act.

The Cornwall Community Police Service is reminding motor vehicle drivers of the dangers of driving while distracted and dedicated to their vision; “A Safer Cornwall, Reducing Crime Always”. For more information and simulator of distracted driving please go to www.distracteddriving.caa.ca.

There is a term that Gerald Celente uses and he calls it “JUST US” meaning that there is no justice for ordinary people but just the very rich. This is so very true indeed. Remember when Patty Hearst held up banks and got away because of who she is and if she were some ordinary person she would have been thrown away in the clink without the key. There is no justice and none in Cornwall or anywhere. If your name is Kilger, Samson, Grant, Licky, Gardner, Latour, Fitzpatrick and along with some others then you get off free. There… Read more »

Absolutely love the new BLOTTER PHOTO.

Since memories seem to be short when it comes to the political realm, why not leave this BLOTTER BOY PHOTO up until the community is advised that the LAW APPLIES EQUALLY TO ALL by our POLICE CHIEF.

More tickets to distracted drivers !

We have a great police chief.

Still, I believe that the police see Mr. G.’s action as frivolous and forgivable. Therefor you will see NO charges.

What the community see’s is arrogance and a term Jules used
earlier ‘no justice only JUST US’.

DUKERS 1 – I as well have no immediate issues with our current chief of police, this I have stated in this forum on a prior occasion. I also share your opinion that we are not likely to see Councilor Syd Gardiner charged, just a slightly different take on the reasons why. Arrogance is what we witnessed from SYD coupled with a pistol mentality. A rather poor example to set for Cornwall’s youth and the community at large. Mr. Gardiner would undoubtedly benefit (no doubt might we all) from an anger management program however that is not likely to happen… Read more »

What no charges for Syd the Destroyer ?I guess freedom of Expression is not tolerated!
Has anyone found the protest signs,or did they conveniently disappear as providing them only provides evidence of Syd’s illegal actions.
