WPS  Bike Patrol Update

Thursday, August 08, 2019 - Members of the Woodstock Police Bike Patrol Unit were kept busy last week keeping the community safe by focusing on Seatbelt, Distracted Driving, and other Highway Traffic Act infractions. The officers set up in different locations throughout the City of Woodstock with a focus on the downtown core.

Over the course of three days, officers from the bike unit conducted numerous traffic stops of vehicles with 8 traffic tickets being handed out to drivers for not wearing seatbelts and for distracted driving.

Police would like to remind drivers to buckle up at all times and make sure themselves and others in the vehicle are wearing the seatbelt properly.

Drivers are also reminded to pay attention to other bike riders, pedestrians and other vehicles that are using the roads by keeping their cellphones out of sight and out of reach. If convicted for a first time offence of distracted driving, the driver can be fined up to $1000.00, lose their licence for three days and cost them three demerit points.

Stay safe Woodstock.
