Project Safe Start Results in Over 1900 Charges

Rediscover Your YMCA

As Halton Police have wrapped up Project Safe Start for another year, we are still reminding the public to take extra care in and around School Zones and Community Safety Zones.

As a result of targeted enforcement in School and Community Safety Zones during this year’s campaign, Halton officers have laid 1908 charges.  These include:

  • Speeding 1152
  • Seatbelts 142
  • Stop Signs 158
  • Other  456 (including at least 28 Distracted Driving charges)

During the enforcement phase, several suspended drivers were taken off the road, two commercial vehicles taken out of service for severe mechanical defects and at least one person was charged with Stunt Driving.  Keep in mind that all of these charges occurred within School Zones and Community Safety Zones!

Vigilance and due care and attention should always be paramount when driving; not just when police hold special campaigns such as Project Safe Start.  Enforcement officers will still be out 24/7 keeping an eye on our roads to ensure safe travel for all.
