Police say keeping an eye on your fellow drivers will help enforce public safety. The Kelowna RCMP is asking all motorists to help identify and report impaired driving in the city as part of a new road safety initiative with the MADD Central Okanagan Chapter.

The Road Safety Program launches tomorrow, Tuesday, April 16, at a public meeting that will unveil new road signs to alert drivers to the program. Mayor Walter Gray and Const. Kris Clark of the Kelowna RCMP will be attending the event, which will take place on the corner of Lakeshore and Hobson Roads. National President of MADD Canada, Denise Dubyk, will also be attending, as well as volunteer and former drunk driving victim, Riley Russell.
