Road Watch

Welcome to the York Regional Police Road Watch Online Reporting system .

Road Watch is a community driven program that provides citizens with a means to report aggressive or unlawful driver behaviour. Instances of unsafe lane changes, disobeying traffic lights and stop signs are some typical types of behaviors that qualify for a Road Watch submission.

Once a submission is received by York Regional Police, the information will be reviewed by a police officer and, if deemed appropriate, a letter will be sent to the owner of the vehicle outlining the date, time and location of the incident. The letter will also include important messages encouraging the owner to ensure all who drive their vehicles do so in a safe and responsible manner.

Road Watch may be used in instances where:

  • No collision occurred. If the incident resulted in a collision, please call the police for further instructions;
  • The suspect driver is not known to you. If the identity of the driver is known, call the police;
  • The suspect’s licence plate number was obtained. A brief description of the vehicle is also needed to validate the licence plate information;

As accurate a description as possible of the incident should be submitted. Providing as much information as possible will help ensure that action will be taken against the suspect vehicle owner.

York Regional Police will only accept reports that occurred inside York Region. To report a non-emergency incident that occurred outside York Region, please contact the local police service for that area. Click here for map of York Region.
