Report aggressive drivers

Road Watch program logoThe local Road Watch program is a Town of Newmarket community initiative that gives citizens an opportunity to report dangerous and aggressive drivers to the police. Road Watch incorporates three components essential to modifying aggressive driving behaviour:

  • public education and awareness
  • participation
  • enforcement

By creating greater awareness and encouraging increased public participation, the program is designed to reduce motor vehicle collisions and potential fatalities.

What is aggressive driving?

Aggressive driving is defined as speeding, following too closely, failure to yield right-of-way, improper lane changes, disobeying traffic signs and signals and other similar behaviour. The personal injury, vehicle damage, repair costs and time consequences have serious implications for everyone.

How can you help?

If you observe a dangerous act of aggressive driving on a Newmarket road, please fill in the details on the Road Watch Online Citizen Report form.
