Traffic & Road Safety

On behalf of the members of the Waterloo Regional Police Traffic Services Branch, welcome to our branch home page. Road safety touches all our lives and has consistently been identified by the community as a top policing priority.

Our web pages have been developed to help keep you informed about who we are, what we do, why we do it and how we do it. We also intend to help provide insight into our comprehensive road safety strategy developed by the officers in Traffic Services- a strategy built on education, enforcement and awareness.

One of our primary goals is to reduce the number of serious injuries and fatalities in our Region each year. However, enforcement alone will not eliminate all collisions or preventable incidents.

Road safety is a shared responsibility. Motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and other vulnerable road users are urged to make safety their top priority at all times as we work together to achieve our goal of making Waterloo Region streets and highways the safest in Ontario.
