More than 3,000 tickets were issued to road users as part of a week of action and engagement.

Between Monday, July 13, 2020, and Sunday, July 19, 2020, officers made traction in Toronto communities by educating all road users on collision-causing behaviours, as well as taking enforcement action.

Members particularly focused on “The Big 4” behaviours that are known to cause injuries to people using our roads and identified drivers who were speeding, driving aggressively, driving while distracted and driving while impaired.

Additional engagement, education and enforcement continued beyond tickets issued.

Tickets issued to all road users included:

Speeding – 1,950
Aggressive – 927
Handheld – 92
Other – 38

Officers laid ten stunt driving-related infractions where the drivers received a suspension and their vehicles were impounded. A total of 19 impaired-related arrests were also made.

Sergeant Jason Kraft thanked all those who helped spread the traffic safety messages.

Toronto’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan acknowledges that collisions are inevitable but that killed and seriously injured (KSI) collisions are preventable and unacceptable. Zero injuries and deaths on our roads is the number that we all should be working towards.
