Motorists in Corner Brook can expect to see more of a police presence in certain residential areas for the rest of this summer.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary has begun stepping up its monitoring of traffic in higher-density residential areas in an effort to make the streets safer.

Using stationary patrols, the police force is hoping to cut down on the amount of speeding vehicles and other traffic violations in targetted areas. Officers will be utilizing hand-held radar equipment in specific locations, as well as extra patrols to enforce laws under the Highway Traffic Act.

The RNC reminds the public to be aware of posted speed limits on city roads and to use caution through construction zones.

    I know this is a late comment but there not enough of this in the school zones, special with the bigger school opening on Mt Bernard. Plus the road they were ticketing is high traffic because people use it as a short cut. I think it should be 40k in all of Corner Brook and 50k on the main roads. One time they gave out enough tickets to pay for their job. I personal don't think there enough police.

    This should definitely be done on O'Connell.. I don't know how many times I've seen vehicles go flying up and down that road.. Even the amount of cars driving through red lights is beyond ridiculous.

    Oh yeah, there's a picture for ya. You're driving along and come around a bend to see someone pointing what looks like a gun at you.

      Rather see some police officer point what looks like a gun then to have my children hit by a car. It's about time our force stepped up to rid our streets of fast driving morrons....i mean god forbid someone follow the speed limit or use indicators in this town....this place is insane when it comes to people following road rules.
