Halton Regional Police will be running a traffic safety initiative that targets drivers who speed on residential 50km/hr streets in the Town of Oakville.
Residential speeding remains a high priority for the citizens of Oakville. As the population increases, there is more and more traffic on the roads, resulting in more congestion.
Motorists often use secondary roads in an attempt to thwart the traffic congestion. Project “Five-O” has become an annual spring/summer Oakville traffic initiative that has proven to be successful on an educational and enforcement level.
As a result, a fall version of the program is being introduced this year. Project “Five-O” is geared towards high visibility enforcement on residential streets in attempts to increase compliance on residential speed limits.
District Response Team (DRT) officers have identified a number of residential streets where motorists consistently disregard the posted speed limit. These residential streets pose more risk to both pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
The goal of Project “Five-O” is to reduce the average speeds and increase compliance of stop signs on our residential streets.
Project “Five-O” will be in effect for a two week period between November 7 – 21, 2015.
We all play a role in keeping our communities safe. Our residential streets are home to playing children, pets, people out running and the elderly out for a walk. Slow down, be alert and drive safe.
