Abbotsford police poke fun at drivers

The Abbotsford police department has launched its annual driving excuses road safety campaign on Twitter.

Abbotsford Police Constable Ian MacDonald says the origin of the campaign was to try to engage people on the serious topic of road safety from a different angle, and a reminder that not even police can be serious 24-hours a day.

But he says the way people respond to it has given it a life of its own.

“I guess, we’re somewhat a victim of our own success. We did this four years ago and we can’t really stop because people keep asking us to do it, and some people ask us to do it year round.”

“I think in fairness why some of these comments are funny is that people know that they’re doing something wrong. It’s just either the stress or them fumbling for some kind of excuse they just offer these ridiculous things that come out of their head without a filter. And then of course we make note of them and then try and make fun of them later.”

Police will be sharing more excuses through the APD’s Twitter account all week.
