A one-week traffic safety blitz around neighbourhood schools in Durham Region has resulted in more than 1,100 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 during the week of January 8-12, 2018.
During this week, officers issued 1,144 tickets for various driving offences in and around schools. This includes 667 tickets for speeding and 8 charges of distracted driving.
The goal of the annual enforcement campaign is to ensure high officer visibility and proactive enforcement in and around school zones during the first week back to school. The DRPS would like to thank local school officials and members of the public for supporting this traffic initiative.
