Waterloo Regional Police Launch Road Safety Campaign #CareToShare

Posted on Wednesday June 06, 2018

Waterloo Region, Ontario –  The Waterloo Regional Police Service is pleased to launch its #CareToShare social media campaign, aimed at encouraging motorists and cyclists to work together and share the roadway.

The #CareToShare campaign will run over the next week to celebrate Bike Month in Waterloo Region. It will focus on educating both motorists and cyclists on important safety tips to help them better understand road safety laws and to ensure a safe cycling season for all road users.

“Road safety is a shared responsibility and it’s important that all road users understand that their actions affect not only themselves, but everyone on the road,” said Waterloo Regional Police Chief Bryan Larkin. “As the weather continues to warm up we will see many more cyclists out on the roads. This campaign is a great way to reach all road users from across Waterloo Region and educate them on the importance of sharing the road.”

Road safety is a top priority for the Waterloo Regional Police Service.  The number of cyclists on our roads has increased over the years and it’s important that everyone plays their part to ensure the safety of all users. This includes being alert and aware of your surroundings, learning the rules of the road and abiding by them and practicing patience.
