On Monday, September 19, 2016 the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) Traffic Services Unit released statistics from this year’s Project Safe Start road safety initiative.

Now in its tenth year, Project Safe Start is a highly visible reminder to drivers that children are back in school and they need to slow down in and around school zones, watch for pedestrians, and pay attention to school crossing guards escorting children across busy intersections.

Over the course of the weeklong campaign, which ran from September 7 to 13, officers focused a number of dangerous driving behaviours, the top four of which were: speeding, disobeying stop signs, distracted driving and administrative offences. A total of 2,299 Provincial Offence Notices were issued as a result of their efforts for these and other violations.

“Traffic safety is a Service and community priority in Halton Region,” said Sergeant Ryan Snow, Traffic Services Unit. “While Project Safe Start formally ends, officers will continue to enforce the rules of the road in a bid to make ours safer for everyone.”

Residents are reminded that they can file driving complaints or request enforcement of a particular area online at www.haltonpolice.ca under Most Requested Information -> Roadwatch or Traffic Complaints respectively. Criminal/dangerous driving should be reported immediately by calling 9-1-1.
