Traffic officers are continuously working on improving road safety through education and enforcement and do their best to respond to every traffic complaint received.
Officers from the Oakville District Response Team are cracking down on high-speed drivers who take advantage of the open road during off-peak traffic times.
Many commuters traveling through the Town of Oakville during these “off-peak” traffic times take advantage of the open roadway and drive at high rates of speed, jeopardizing both public and road safety.
Project “High Flyer” began on September 11, 2015 and will run for two weeks.
The primary targeted time of day is during the hours of 12:00pm-3:00pm (pre rush hour) and 8:00pm-11:00pm (post rush hour) as there is an increase in pedestrian traffic.
The second targeted time is between 11:00pm and 5:00am when traffic is at a minimum but the speeds are the highest.
We all play an integral role in ensuring safer roads in the Region of Halton. Don’t assume it’s safe to speed just because there is less traffic or because there is a clear road ahead. The faster the speed, the less time you have to react to a situation.
Please drive safe so everyone gets home safely!
