L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

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.
