The Toronto Police Service is committed to Vision Zero and making Toronto roads among the safest in the world.
Vision Zero acknowledges collisions are going to happen, but that Killed or Seriously Injured (KSI) collisions are preventable.
From Monday, June 18, 2018, to Sunday, June 24, 2018, Traffic Services focused on known contributing factors to KSI collisions. These factors include speeding, distracted driving, aggressive driving, and impaired driving.
Over 600 provincial offence notices were issued during this campaign.
The top infractions were:
Disobey Sign Offences: 163
Distracted Driving Offences: 75
Turning Offences: 72

We all have a role to play in making Toronto roadways safe places.
