Halton Regional Police is working to contribute to Canada’s third national road safety strategy which aims to make Canada’s roads the safest in the world.

Halton Police recognize that citizens within Halton Region place traffic safety as a high priority and to that end officers from the services three District Response Teams will be patrolling along Dundas Street this coming Friday May 22nd to ensure a Safe Commute.

This targeted saturation patrol tactic is designed to raise public safety through enhancing our enforcement capacity.

This is the first in a series of targeted blitzes that will focus on main commuter routes throughout Oakville.

Officers will be targeting the Big 4 driving factors that place commuters at risk:

  1. Distracted driving
  2. Alcohol and drug Impaired driving
  3. Failure to wear seat belts
  4. Aggressive driving

These driving behaviors have been identified as higher risk behaviors and have the potential to affect not only those that practice these behaviors but all and any roadway users.

Motorists are reminded that driving on our roadways is a privilege, not a right and it is a shared responsibility by users to help keep our roadways safe.

Police are requesting that all commuters “go the extra mile” and help to make our community roads and highways safe and enjoyable for everyone.

If any citizen would like to report a traffic concern they can do so by visiting our website and making a Road Watch complaint.

ROAD WATCH is a community driven program encouraging anonymous reporting of incidents involving dangerous and/or aggressive driving. This program is an opportunity to bring an aggressive driver to our attention. Be the extra eyes and ears and learn more here: Halton Police Road Watch
