Traffic Report for September 2019

From The Traffic Unit
Back to School season is always a particularly busy time for the STPS traffic unit. This September was no different.
Distracted Driving: Police ran several initiatives targeting cell phone use while driving. This project was extremely successful with thirty five charges being laid between August 2nd to September 30th.

School Zone Blitz: (Cross Walks, Bus Stops, Parking, etc) Officers descended on school zones for the first week of September both before and after school. Five parking tickets were issued, some warnings were issued and one person was fined for running a stop sign. Overall, parents were patient and conducted themselves in a safe manner around the schools.
Speeding: Balaclava Street between South Edgeware and Edward Street. This project was started based on citizen complaints and resulted in eleven charges being laid for speeding in September.
Dalewood Drive (the new bridge); The redesign of the new bridge has re-opened a long awaited pathway into the city. This project was started based on citizen complaints and has proven to be an area of concern for speed and safety issues. Thirty four speeding charges were laid in September and police will continue to monitor the area.
Watch for us in October as we add a couple of problematic four way stops onto our focused patrol at Fifth and Chestnut and First Ave and Mandeville Road.
