Traffic Campaign In West Scarborough

41 Division

In an effort to ensure public safety, 41 Division will engage in an increased enforcement campaign from August 10-16.

The top collision locations and intersections will be targeted and motorists are encouraged to obey all rules of the road and to be aware of their surroundings.

“This is something we do every year in the Division,” said Sergeant John Murphy. “With fatalities up across the city so far this year, we want to get the message out that the rules of the road should be obeyed and there is no room for distracted driving. Motorists are and pedestrians should desist from using distracted electronic devices whenever they are on or near roadways.”

There have been 36 fatalities on the roads this year, up from 20 at the same time in 2014. The largest group affected is pedestrians at 24 deaths compared with 31 for all of last year.

He said officers will pay particular attention to motorists who run traffic lights and stop signs, commit offences at pedestrian crossovers and crosswalks, speed and make unsafe lane changes.
