(Ottawa)— With students returning from summer holidays, the Ottawa Police Traffic sections conducted city-wide proactive traffic enforcement blitzes in school zones.
The week long enforcement campaign, which took place September 6 – 9, focused on traffic safety in and around school zones. In particular, officers looked for:
* speeding in school zones, * failing to stop, failing to yield to pedestrians at school crossings, * failing to obey crossing guards, * failing to obey school bus signs, * distracted driving.
As a result, a total of 292 Provincial Offence Notices were issued during this enforcement campaign.
The Ottawa Police Service continues to remind drivers to be alert when driving; this especially applies in school zones.
