On Tuesday, May 16, 2017, at 7 a.m., at the Toronto Police College, 70 Birmingham Street, the Toronto Police Service, in partnership with the Ontario Provincial Police, Halton Regional Police Service, Peel Regional Police, York Regional Police, and the Durham Regional Police Service, will be launching the annual Canada Road Safety Week campaign. These Greater Toronto Police Services will target the “Big 4 killers” on our roads: impaired operation by alcohol or drug, failure or improper use of seatbelts, distracted and aggressive driving.

Officers will be conducting targeted traffic enforcement in and around the City of Toronto, on Highways 427 and 401, the Don Valley Parkway, the Gardiner Expressway, as well as city streets.

Canada Road Safety Week is a national traffic safety and enforcement initiative conducted in partnership with the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and police services from across Canada. This co-ordinated effort between policing agencies is aiming to achieve the goal of making Canada’s roads the safest in the world. This seven-day campaign begins on Tuesday, May 16, 2017, at 12:01 a.m. and runs until Monday, May 22, 2017, at 11:59 p.m.

Distracted driving continues to be a problem on our roads which puts other road-users at risk. Special attention will be paid to those drivers who continue to display a total disregard for other users of the road by using hand-held communication and entertainment devices while driving.
