Road Watch is a community driven program that provides citizens with a means to report aggressive or unlawful driver behaviour on our roadways when the licence plate of the suspect is known. Instances of unsafe lane changes, and disobeying traffic lights and stop signs are some typical types of behaviours that qualify for a Road Watch submission.
Once a submission is received by Greater Sudbury Police Service, the information will be reviewed 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.
Road Watch may be used in instances where:
As accurate a description as possible of the incident should be submitted. Providing as much information as possible will help ensure that action will be taken against the suspect vehicle owner.
