CORNWALL, Ontario – The Cornwall Community Police Service (CCPS) will be closely monitoring traffic along Brookdale Avenue and the Seaway International Bridge as a result of an increase in reported incidents of dangerous and aggressive driving coming from and going to The Seaway International Bridge.

The Seaway International Bridge is the main crossing for those who wish to enter Akwesasne or the United States from Canada and efforts are being made to ensure the safety of everyone.

”There is always a “zero tolerance approach” when it comes to the safety of the public and anyone found driving aggressively and / or driving dangerously will be charged accordingly regardless of where it might be in our city” stated S/Sgt Fraser. CCPS is asking the public to please respect the 50 Km / 35 Mph speed limit while driving along this corridor and report any incidents that might put the public’s safety at risk. The public is encouraged to contact 613-933-5000 ext 2404 to leave anonymous information if they know of someone who drives in such a manner or ext. 2418 to reach CCPS dispatch. Together we can make “Cornwall a safer place for all to enjoy”.
