In an effort to enhance road safety and reduce the incidence of aggressive driving in our community, the Saint John Police will once again be conducting an Aggressive Driving Campaign between October 30 – November 3, 2023. The goal is to deter aggressive driving behaviours and hold accountable those who put others at risk.
Through education and enforcement, Traffic Management Officers will increase efforts targeting aggressive driving behaviours that endanger other persons or property such as speeding, tailgating, unsafe lane changes, disobeying traffic control devices, and driving without due care and attention.
