York Region Road Watch ProgramTake Action Against Aggressive Driving: report it to York Region Road Watch

York Region Road Watch is a community-based initiative that gives citizens an opportunity to report dangerous and aggressive drivers to York Regional Police.

Road Watch incorporates three components essential to modifying aggressive driving behavior – public education, awareness and enforcement. Together, these key factors can reduce motor vehicle collisions, prevent injury and even death.

Aggressive Driving

Aggressive driving includes speeding, following too closely, failing to yield, unsafe lane changes, unsafe passing and disobeying traffic signs and signals.
