Halton Police Release Results from Project 'Safe Start'
The Halton Regional Police Service has concluded Project ‘Safe Start’ with the following results:
752 Provincial Offence Notices issued
475 Provincial Offence Notices issued
653 Provincial Offence Notices issued
Project 'Safe Start' began in 2006, as a highly visible reminder to drivers that children are back to school and they need to slow down in and around school zones, watch for pedestrians and pay attention to school crossing guards escorting children across busy intersections.
District Response units, Uniform Patrol officers, Education Services and Senior Command officers took part in the campaign that commenced September 4th and ended September 14th.
“Road safety is an ongoing priority across the Region. The focus of the Safe Start program is to serve as a reminder to motorists that school is back in and the need to remain vigilant to keep our children safe," said Deputy Chief Bob Percy.
