Project Swoop traffic campaign results

Surrey:On November 27th, a one day traffic education and enforcement campaign, Project Swoop, the Surrey and White Rock RCMP along with the Fraser Valley Integrated Road Safety Unit (IRSU) issued over 70 violation tickets for a number of speeding and high risk driving behaviours. Speeding was by far the most ticketed infraction followed by seatbelts and distracted driving.
The campaign took place at various high collision locations throughout Surrey and White Rock and included a number of officers, volunteers, and auxiliaries from the Surrey and White Rock RCMP, CN Rail Police, ICBC Road Safety Team, and Surrey Crime Prevention Society.
During this time of year incidents involving vehicle crashes and pedestrians significantly increase, and a large number of those incidents can be prevented, says Cpl Bert Paquet of the Surrey RCMP. The Surrey RCMP continue to participate in events such as Project Swoop as they have proven to be effective in reducing the number of traffic incidents in the City of Surrey.
Speed-related crashes significantly increase from October to December in BC,says Karen Klein, local ICBC road safety coordinator. In poor weather, slow down, increase your following distance and give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination.
