The DRPS will be conducting its annual traffic safety blitz around neighbourhood schools in Durham Region as students return to class after the holidays.
The Durham Regional Police Traffic Services Branch, in conjunction with officers from all divisions, will conduct a zero tolerance traffic enforcement campaign targeting school and community safety zones during the week of January 8-12, 2018.
Last year, more than 1,000 traffic tickets were issued during this blitz, which included 562 tickets for speeding.
The goal of this annual "In the Zone" enforcement campaign is to ensure high officer visibility and proactive enforcement in and around school zones during the first week back to school.
DRPS reminds all drivers to reduce speed, use extra caution in school zones and be mindful of children walking in the area.
Thanks to local school officials and members of the public for supporting this traffic initiative.
Driving is a privilege not a right. Please drive safely.
