DRPS conducting safety zone blitz

Durham Regional Police Service will be conducting its annual traffic safety blitz around neighbourhood schools in Durham Region as students return to class after the holidays.
The Durham Regional Police Traffic services branch, in conjunction with officers from all divisions, will conduct a zero tolerance traffic enforcement campaign targeting school and community safety zones through Friday (Jan. 11).

Last year, more than 1,000 traffic tickets were issued during this blitz, which included 667 tickets for speeding and eight charges of distracted driving.

The goal of this annual “In the Zone” enforcement campaign is to ensure high officer visibility and proactive enforcement in and around school zones during the first week back to school.
