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.

Const. Scott Mosher of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary checks the speed of oncoming traffic on Brookfield Avenue in Corner Brook Monday morning.
