Councillor Sandra Racco helped PTWA setup a meeting with York Regional Police to get some guidance on what the community can do to combat the chronic speeding and traffic issues within Thornhill Woods. York Regional Police and the City of Vaughan will continue to monitor the situation within Thornhill Woods with a particular focus on Apple Blossom Drive, Thornhill Woods Drive and Bathurst Glen Drive. Expect to see monitoring equipment and additional policing setup along these roads in the near future.
York Regional Police have indicated that the residents of Thornhill Woods can play an important role in reporting dangerous drivers through their web based, Road Watch reporting program.
Road Watch is a community driven program that provides citizens with a means to report aggressive or unlawful driver behaviour. Instances of unsafe lane changes, disobeying traffic lights and stop signs are some typical types of behaviours that qualify for a Road Watch submission.
You must have the offending car’s license plate number and a valid email address before reporting an incident.
Once a submission is received by York Regional Police, the information will be reviewed by a police officer and, if deemed appropriate, a letter sent to the owner of the vehicle outlining the date, time and location of the incident. The letter will also include important messages encouraging the owner to ensure all who drive their vehicles do so in a safe and responsible manner. While no fine is issued via this system, the warning remains on the vehicle’s record and will assist the police with the identification of chronic offenders.
We wanted to thank Councillor Sandra Racco and the York Regional Police with their assistance.
Please share this information with your friends and neighbours and make an effort to use the system to report dangerous drivers.
