Durham Regional Police recently implemented a successful “Whitby Stop Sign Traffic Safety Blitz” program. Officers were out for two days patrolling intersections that have been considered problem areas.
Over the two-day blitz, 90 provincial offences were laid relating to stop sign offences, as well as, two drug arrests, one executed committal warrant and one arrest for breach of recognizance.
“The presence of a police cruiser at a targeted complaint area is worth its weight in gold to the citizens and motorists who reside and travel in the designed areas,” said Traffic Safety Coordinator, Cst. Daryl Rice.
This program has shown that it was much needed to keep our community safe. It could not have been done without the commitment and dedication of the officers throughout the two days. This program has helped to make the streets of Whitby safer!
