CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

There will be a free workshop on the rules, regulations and etiquette of Canadian and P.E.I. driving on Saturday, March 2, in Charlottetown.

The Canadian Highway Code session will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the Carrefour de l’Isle-Saint-Jean.

This information session will be delivered in French by Joe Byrne, longtime instructor with the Abegweit Driving School in Charlottetown.

Chérine Stevula, co-ordinator of RDEE P.E.I.’s LIENS project, said the workshop is aimed primarily to French-speaking newcomers to Canada and P.E.I. but is also open to anyone else who is interested.

“The rules of the road can vary from one province to the next as well as from one country to the next, so it’s extremely important to know the code of the road of the province where we like to avoid accidents, frustrations and traffic violations,’’ Stevula said.

The workshop will take place in a classroom setting to participants aren’t required to have a valid driving license. A light breakfast will be served.

Anyone interested must sign up by Feb. 28 by contacting Lora Mazur at 902-370-7333, ext. 407, or at lora@rdeeipe.org.
