Toronto Police Traffic Services, Back to School Campaign,
September 9 - September 17, 2021

Broadcast time: 07:00

Phone: 416-808-1900

September is here and that means ‘Back to School’ for students all across the City of Toronto.

As our most vulnerable road users head back to the classroom, the Toronto Police Service’s commitment to road safety continues to be a priority. Traffic Services will be conducting a Back to School Safety campaign from Thursday, September 9, 2021 to Friday, September 17, 2021.

The campaign will focus on reminding all road users about increased traffic across Toronto, specifically within school and residential zones.

With emphasis on enforcement, education and community engagement, officers will be looking out for drivers who speed, drive aggressively and drive distracted or impaired. Officers will also be in school zones targeting those who are parked illegally or vehicles potentially putting others at risk. Often, these behaviours lead to frustration, congestion and an unsafe environment for all road users.

The campaign also ties in with Toronto’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan which sees the Service, the City of Toronto and other community partners working together to achieve zero deaths on our roads.

Members of Traffic Services will be joining the City in launching the Back to School Safety campaign this morning beside a local school.

Media Launch: Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 8 a.m.
Location: George Webster Park, 30 Chapman Avenue, East York.
