Brant County has teamed up with the OPP to clamp down on lead-foots.
County Council launched the “Give Us a Brake” campaign today (Thursday), after concerned Burford-area residents came forward about speeding vehicles travelling through their communities.
“Give Us a Brake” signs are now posted at the outskirts of Harley and Kelvin and additional signs will be posted in various other communities throughout the County.
And so far, officials say the signs are proving to be effective.
OPP Acting Detachment Commander, Jim Millson said, “As a result of this County-led traffic safety initiative, residents and County officials, alike, have noticed an overall reduction in motorist speed in the area.”
