Although Halton Regional Police have wrapped up the 2014 Project Safe Start campaign, 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 2470 charges. These include:

  • Speeding 1286
  • Seatbelts 53
  • Stop Signs 197
  • Driving with Hand Held Device 187
  • Careless Driving 27
  • Driving while Suspended 6
  • Disobey Red Light 32
  • Other (misc. Highway Traffic Act Offences) 682


During the enforcement phase, several suspended drivers were taken off the road. Keep in mind that all of these charges occurred within School Zones and Community Safety Zones!

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