CACPS in action
CitizensActionCommittee onPublic Security groups across the region say theirmembers are ready for a busy fall season. And wasting no time, the L’Île-Perrot CACPSwill hold a road safety prevention campaign tomorrow, September 30 from4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the intersection of Provence and Boischatel streets.
Meanwhile, PincourtCACPSmemberswill also remind local drivers about the do’s and don’ts of road safety on Saturday October 2 from noon to 2 p.m. at the intersection of Cardinal-Léger andDuhamel streets.
And parents living near 4th and 23rd streets in L’Île-Perrot contacted theirCACPS chapter to ask if they could help educate drivers about theneed to slowdownwhile driving in the residential area. Responding to the need, the L’Île-PerrotCACPSwill hold a prevention campaign near 4th and 23rd streets onOctober12from4:30p.m. to6:30p.m.
During such campaigns, CACPS volunteers partnerwith SQpolice to help educate drivers through the distribution of bilingual information brochures. And though the brochures offer simple suggestions such as the need to come to complete stops at stop signs, respecting speed limits and such, members saywhen themessage is conveyed by local citizens tolocal citizens it is effective.
To date, the grassroots CACPSmovement that started in Saint-Lazare in 2005 has groups in 17MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges towns including: Vaudreuil-Dorion, Pincourt, Hudson, L’Île-Perrot andNotre-Damede-l’Île Perrot, among others.
