The Abbotsford Police have taken a different approach when it comes to road safety. They have launched a campaign called High 5’s from the 5-0 which acknowledges drivers for their good behaviour on the road. Police have been rewarding people for following the posted speed limits and signaling before turning and changing lanes.
Constable Ian MacDonald, Public Information Officer for the Abbotsford Police Department, spoke with Sam Ferris today. He says police having been stopping drivers for their good behaviour and rewarding drivers with Tim Hortons gift cards and high fives.
