Traffic safety continues to be a service priority for the Toronto Police Service. On Tuesday, September 8, 2015, at 7 a.m., the Toronto Police Service, in partnership with the Toronto District School Board, will be launching the annual back-to-school campaign “Are you FOCUSED on school” (Frequent Offences the Community and Road Users See Every Day). This initiative will begin on Tuesday, September 8, 2015, and conclude on Friday, September 11, 2015.

Police officers, Parking Enforcement Officers, as well as representatives from the TDSB, will be on hand at Forest Manor Public School, 25 Forest Manor Road, from 7 a.m. until 10 a.m. Officers will be conducting an enforcement initiative which will educate parents and children on back-to-school safety tips, addressing traffic safety concerns occurring in and around the school zone.

This campaign will focus on road-users who jeopardize the safety of the public through their poor decisions and behaviours. All police officers and Parking Enforcement Officers will be paying attention to motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians who commit offences in the vicinity of school zones, including offences related to pedestrian crossovers, crosswalks, intersections and high-risk mid-block crossing.

Enforcement will also be targeting aggressive driving offences, prohibited turns, and distracted driving behaviours, along with “No Stopping” and “No Parking” restrictions within school zones.
