Project Swoop hits Richmond

On Thursday, Richmond RCMP partnered with ICBC to participate in Project Swoop, a one-day education and enforcement campaign to remind drivers about the dangers of speeding and distracted driving.

Community policing volunteers from Richmond’s three Community Police Stations hit the pavement along with police officers and ICBC’s Road Safety Team to drive home the fact that both speeding and using a cell phone while driving are dangerous.

“We’ve been telling people for quite some time now to slow down and pay attention when driving but still collisions are occurring where speed and distracted driving are factors,” said Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley.
