Verizon IndyCar Series driver and dancing with the stars semi finalist James Hinchcliffe has added another string his bow. The Mayor of HinchTown has become an honorary police officer having teamed up with the Halton Regional Police Service in Ontario for Crime Prevention week as part of their ‘Stay on Track’ road safety campaign.
Hinchcliffe who appears in the commercial commented by saying:
Halton residents have ranked traffic safety among their top policing priority. As a professional race car driver, safety comes first when I am on the track and on the roads. The Halton Regional Police Service also recognizes this concern and is committed to promoting traffic safety through various campaigns and programs during the year. As an “honorary” police officer, I am proud to announce the PSA about distracted driving will be featured during Crime Prevention Week,
Halton Regional Police Service deputy chief Nishan Duraiappah commented by saying:
Driving behaviour impacts the safety of our community. This year it has resulted in a number of tragic outcomes, which cause a rippling impact in the wellness of our communities. Our participation in Crime Prevention Week showcases the Service’s commitment to addressing identified community priorities through a combination of enforcement and risk mitigation. The preventative PSA represents a scenario, which occurs far too often on our roads. To assist, if you observe a vehicle being operated in a manner which places you, or anyone else in danger, please call 911.
