This two-week initiative will focus on road users that blatantly and carelessly put children at risk as a result of their poor driving habits.
All officers and parking enforcement officers will be paying special attention to motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians who commit offences in the area of school zones including offences related to pedestrian crossovers, crosswalks, intersections and high-risk, mid-block crossing behaviors.
Enforcement will also target aggressive driving offences, prohibited turns, and distracted driving behaviours along with “No Stopping” and “No Parking” restrictions within school zones.
On Tuesday, September 4, 2013, at 7 a.m., Traffic Services enforcement officers will be attending Martingrove Collegiate Institute at 50 Winterton Drive, for the kick off of this important campaign.
