REMINDER: DRIVE WITH CARE THROUGH BRIDGE CORRIDOR

 Due to recent concerns regarding travellers driving unsafely through the international border crossing area and corridor connecting Cornwall to Kawehno:ke (Cornwall Island) and the U.S., the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is reminding drivers to please travel safely through this area.

 

Due to the amount of traffic at the customs ports and throughout the bridge corridor, any unsafe driving puts our community members, customs officers, toll booth attendants, construction workers and the general travelling public, including children, at serious risk. Driving unsafely is never a good idea, but it is even more dangerous when done in a congested area with a high volume of traffic. Please drive safely through the bridge corridor at all times. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
