Think and Drive

Introduction

"Think and Drive... a second is all it takes", is a road safety campaign, encouraging Durham drivers to take personal responsibility for making themselves and others safer on the roads.  The focus of Think and Drive is on driver behaviour, in particular speeding, distracted driving and impaired driving.

Road Safety Challenge

Take the Durham Road Safety Challenge as a fun way to learn more about your driving behaviour. Together we can make a difference on our roads!

Think And Drive

The Facts

In the past two years, 62 people have died in Durham from motor vehicle collisions (Durham Regional Police Service & OPP 2011 data collection). That is equal to a classroom of people each year!

Durham Region Health Department has partnered with Durham Regional Police Service, Ontario Provincial Police, Durham Region Emergency Medical Services and the Ministry of Transportation to bring Think and Drive to Durham Region.

The goal is to reduce all motor vehicle collisions, injuries and fatalities on our roads. We need your help to reach this goal!
