Paulette Aamot, the local Citizens on Patrol Coordinator spoke to Arctic Radio to give an update on what they have been doing and what they have planned.
In two weeks they will be conducting a speed watch for the community.
They will be monitoring the speed of motorists and they will set up a speed watch signal to let motorists know what the speed limit is and how fast they are going. People that choose to go over the speed limit will be reported.
They will also be conducting a seatbelt and cell phone survey. 60 percent of Passenger deaths in traffic accidents in rural Manitoba involved not wearing seatbelts and 10 percent of these deaths involved distracted driving and the goal is to try to prevent these from happening.
Members have also been selling 50/50 raffle tickets and the draw for 1000 dollars will be done at the trade show.
One of the main objects of Citizens on Patrol is to keep the community and the streets safe.
