Traffic Campaigns

For 2023, the Saint John Police has launched a series of annual traffic campaigns to promote safe and responsible driving. These campaigns focus on educating drivers about the dangers of speeding, dangerous driving, distracted driving, and impaired driving. Additionally, the campaigns promote the use of seatbelts and the importance of following traffic laws. As part of the campaigns, the Saint John Police is utilizing digital and social media platforms to reach drivers and distribute information. The Saint John Police hopes these campaigns will help reduce road fatalities and ensure the safety of drivers.
