Pace Car Program

November 26th, 2015

Stratford, PE – Today, the Town of Stratford launched the latest component in its comprehensive RESPECT traffic safety campaign, the Pace Car program. Through the program residents will be encouraged to take a pledge to be a Pace Car driver and commit to driving respectfully and within the speed limits.

The Town of Stratford is one of 5 designated Canadian communities to launch the Pace Car program, an initiative of Parachute, a national charity focused on injury prevention and keeping Canadians safe. The Pace Car program focuses on raising awareness around speed reduction in the community, especially in school zones and pedestrian-dense areas.  Pace Car is part of Parachute’s child-pedestrian safety program, Walk This Way, which is proudly sponsored by FedEx Express Canada.

“The Town of Stratford is committed to being a community where everyone can enjoy the roads and show respect for one another,” commented David Dunphy, Town of Stratford Mayor. “The Pace Car program is an opportunity for residents to take an active part in creating change.”

To participate residents can visit the Town of Stratford website and take the Pace Car Pledge. Once the pledge is received residents will receive a decal can display the official Pace Car emblems on their cars. Pace Car drivers agree to drive the posted speed limit, with courtesy and respect to other drivers, and be aware of, and courteous to, other road users.

“We know that safety on our roads is a priority for residents and the Town is pleased to be able to partner with Parachute to enhance our road safety programming,” shared Dunphy. “The best way to create this environment is by starting with ourselves, so I encourage everyone to consider taking the pledge and becoming a Pace Car driver.”

ABOUT PARACHUTE

Parachute is a national charity helping Canadians stop the clock on preventable injuries. The injury impact is staggering. Preventable injuries are the #1 killer of children. They cost the Canadian economy $27B a year, and worst of all, one child dies every nine hours. Through education, knowledge and empowerment, Parachute is working to save lives and create an injury-free Canada. For information, visit parachutecanada.org, follow on Twitter, or Facebook.
