Burnt out lights or bad tires? Cornwall police are looking for you

CORNWALL – If you have a winter beater car, city police will look to make sure that car is up to snuff.

The Cornwall Police Service are targeting drivers this month with burnt out headlights, licence plate lights, bad tires, bad brakes and other equipment problems.

It’s part of the force’s monthly traffic safety blitz.

“It is essential that motorists understand the risks associated to driving with improper safety equipment,” the CPS Traffic Unit’s Const. Patrick Depratto said.

Not everyone will get a ticket though, as CPS says they will use “education and enforcement.”
