FREDERICTON, N.B. — The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are serving notice to New Brunswickers that they are cracking down on dangerous driving through a new action plan called Road Safety Vision 2010.

Using the beginning of Safe Driving Week, which runs Dec. 1 to Dec. 7, as the backdrop to the kick off the national campaign, the Mounties, provincial government and other public interest groups outlined the New Brunswick response.

The Road Safety Vision 2010 initiative is a national undertaking aimed at making the country’s roads the safest in the world.

Public Safety Minister Margaret-Ann Blaney says the road safety initiative is an ambitious program requiring co-operation among all partners, including law enforcement agencies, the New Brunswick Safety Council and organizations like Teens Against Drinking and Driving.

“By participating in Road Safety Vision 2010, New Brunswick intends to address these issues through education and public awareness campaigns, enforcement and continued improvement of our provincial roadways,” Blaney says.
