Servicing St. Thomas and all of Ontario
When chatting with St. Thomas residents about life in this scenic place, talk almost invariably turns to transportation. Historically, the city was an important railway junction. Dozens of railways have passed through the community since tracks were first laid in the 1850s. As railways declined, the automotive manufacturing sector boomed. Many St. Thomas residents were employed at these plants and some still have a hand in building many of the cars and trucks we see on local streets and highways.
Recent statistics suggest that drivers in this part of southwestern Ontario are also much more likely to be involved in fatal collisions than in the rest of the province. A 25% spike in the number of fatal accidents prompted police to develop a dangerous driving program that increased awareness, education and enforcement of area motorists – including a focus on commercial truckers.
While the frequency accidents tend to decrease on roads monitored by police, sadly they can and still do happen. In some cases, another person’s negligence may have a profound impact on your life.
