Community Alert Toronto Police Service
Traffic Safety Campaign

Greetings everyone.

The next Service wide traffic campaign of 2016 is approaching.

The Service will be launching the ‘March Break – March Safe’ Pedestrian Safety Campaign.

“Traffic Safety” continues to be identified as a Service priority with an increased focus on pedestrian safety. During the week of Monday, March 14, 2016, to Sunday, March 20, 2016, the Toronto Police Service will be conducting the annual March Break pedestrian safety campaign.

The “March Break, March Safe Campaign” is designed to promote the education, awareness and enforcement strategies intended to heighten public awareness of pedestrian safety.

Collision analysis has shown that, on average 50 – 60 % of all fatalities involve pedestrians. To date, 75% of all the fatalities reported this year have involved senior age pedestrians. Last year, 39 pedestrians lost their lives, representing approximately 60% of all traffic fatalities in Toronto.

The Service will continue to be diligent in education and associated enforcement strategies to enhance pedestrian safety within our communities.
