Make Kahnawake Stop Day returns on Friday, May 27


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) wishes to advise the community that a special one-day safety awareness campaign regarding Stop Signs will take place on Friday, 27 Onerahtohkó:wa/May throughout Kahnawà:ke.

Last year’s initial event, ‘Make Kahnawà:ke Stop,’ was created due to concerns that some drivers failed to obey stop signs. Community member Timmy Norton was especially worried because areas where drivers failed to stop included school zones.

This years’ version of “Make Kahnawà:ke Stop is sponsored by the Kahnawake Peacekeepers and the Public Safety Unit. Community members are encouraged to participate from 10am to 12 noon by gathering near various stop signs to help ‘remind’ drivers to make a complete stop.

“For obvious reason people need to obey traffic signs,” said Public Safety Portfolio Chief Bobby Patton. “This is especially true in school zones. Let’s not wait for a tragedy to promote better – and safer – driving habits. We’d like to thank Mr. Norton for raising awareness on this issue.” 

The Peacekeepers will have extra officers on the road beginning at 6am on that day. Last year approximately 35 tickets were issued, despite the advance warning that event was to take place.
