Pace Car Pledge sees Stratford drivers vow to slow down
Drivers agree to not speed, and to be respectful behind the wheel
People in Stratford are being asked to take 'The Pace Car Pledge', aimed at making traffic safer in the town.
Pace Car drivers agree to drive the posted speed limit, and to be aware and respectful of other road users.
People can take the pledge by going on the town of Stratford's web site, said Mayor David Dunphy.
"You are going to have a decal on the back of your car that says you're a Pace Car driver," said Dunphy. "If we see enough people doing that, being leaders in their community, then hopefully we'll be creating a safer environment for people to walk, bike, jog, whatever."
It seams to be a timely initiative, as Stratford RCMP have just sent out a reminder to drivers to slow down in residential areas, or face hefty fines.
In a three hour period Wednesday between noon and 3:00 p.m., three unmarked cars carried out radar enforcement, and laid nineteen charges for speeding violations.
