A four-day traffic safety blitz around neighbourhood schools in Durham Region has resulted in more than 1,200 traffic tickets being issued.
The Durham Regional Police Traffic Services Branch, in conjunction with officers from all divisions, initiated a zero-tolerance traffic enforcement campaign targeting school and community safety zones from September 2 – 5, 2014.
During this week, officers issued 1,267 tickets for various driving offences in and around schools. This includes 787 tickets for speeding and 76 charges of distracted driving. One driver was clocked at 110 km/h in a 50 km/h zone in Oshawa.
The DRPS would like to thank local school officials and members of the public for supporting this traffic initiative.
