DRPS officers laid nearly 1,200 charges during the recent ‘In the Zone’ traffic safety campaign.
The enforcement initiative targeted school and community zones from Sept. 7 to 17 across the region.
“After an extended absence from the daily school routine, DRPS wanted to ensure that the return to school this year was a safe one for all students across Durham Region,” reads a media release.
This year’s campaign resulted in 1,173 charges issued for various offences in and around schools. Five stunt driving charges were issued, police noted.
“DRPS would like to remind drivers to slow down and pay attention to the roads, especially in school zones,” the media release reads.
“Officers will continue traffic enforcement in and around community safety zones on an ongoing basis.”
