A Lesson for All

Port Hardy RCMP and ICBC educate drivers on the risks of driving.

On Monday, April 20, Port Hardy RCMP and ICBC partnered up to educate new drivers on the dangers and reality of operating a motor vehicle.

Grade 11 and 12 students at Port Hardy Secondary School listened to ICBC guest speaker Greg Drew, talk about the horrific tragedy that happened to his family as a result of street racing. The students also had an opportunity to try the distracted driver simulator, to help them understand just how important it is to obey the speed limit, keep all electronic devices out of their hands and have their eyes on the road when behind the wheel.

Members of the Port Hardy RCMP detachment enforce distracted driving laws along with other motor vehicle infractions to ensure safer streets within our community, says Staff Sergeant Gord Brownridge.

Distracted driving is the cause of many crashes and tragedies on our roadways. It’s important for people to understand the harsh reality and consequence they face if they choose not to follow the law.
