Such road safety principles aimed at eliminating severe injury and death, have been adopted in cities around the world. On June 12, Ottawa Council voted 15-9 to refer the motion to the transportation committee for further study, to explore funding, and to allow the public to have a say.
A second motion by Councillor Jeff Leiper to allocate the federal gas tax towards cycling infrastructure was also referred to the city treasurer to be considered with other competing priorities.

Car Thefts - Lexus/Toyota
The OPS continue to see thefts of high-end Lexus/Toyota vehicles, particularly larger SUVs and 4Runners. Signal amplifiers are now being used. OPS recommends additional line of defense to protect your asset: consider keeping any vehicle with a proximity key fob inside a radio frequency shield device (RSF device). This will prevent the key fob’s signal from being amplified to the vehicle from inside the house protecting it from being driven away.

With the continuing mild weather, the risk of theft from vehicles is higher. Residents are reminded to remove anything of value from their vehicle. Thieves typically look for an unlocked vehicle, and once they gain entry, they go through the entire car, including the trunk,” said Cst.Lemieux. “It isn’t enough to hide items in the console or under the car seats because the thieves are just that thorough.” In the event you notice someone acting suspicious around parked vehicles or if you see someone trying car doors – please call police and report it. Make the right call. “Even if your car is broken into and nothing is taken, it still needs to be reported to police."
In addition to cars, Homes, and backyard sheds are also targeted Be aware and ensure your home looks lived in and sheds and garages are locked; thieves take advantage of any opportunity to steal. Also, PLEASE report all incidents to police, even if nothing was stolen in the end or the car/shed was unlocked. Without your report, police cannot track patterns and assign resources to prevent future break ins.
Current Scams. Fake sites for drivers tests, slashed tires and offers of "help", emails from CHNA execs asking you for MONEY!; CRA - false calls of tax fraud & $$ owed; Ontario Energy Group asks to "inspect" your AC/Furnace; Canadian Cancer Society - does not solicit over the phone; Ottawa Police - not calling for donations and Irish Low Paving Price - it really is too good to be true.
