In the Zone traffic blitz ongoing around schools

The Durham Regional Police advise the public it will be conducting its annual traffic safety blitz around neighbourhood schools in Durham Region as students return to class after the holidays.

The DRPS Traffic Services Branch, in conjunction with officers from all divisions, will conduct a zero tolerance traffic enforcement campaign targeting school and community safety zones during the week of Jan. 8 to 12.

Last year, more than 1,000 traffic tickets were issued during this blitz, which included 562 tickets for speeding.

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