FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday, January 14, 2016   12:00pm

(Ottawa)— With students returning from winter holiday break, the Ottawa Police Traffic sections, assisted by School Resource Officers, conducted city-wide proactive traffic enforcement blitzes in school zones.  

The two-day enforcement campaign, which took place January 13th and 14th , 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 127 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.
