The Durham Regional Police Services Traffic Services Branch initiated a zero-tolerance traffic enforcement campaign targeting school and community safety zones last week. Officers issued nearly 1300 tickets for various driving offences in and around school zones including 872 tickets for speeding. Other tickets included 35 for stop sign and red light violations and ten tickets issued for distracted driving. The goal of the annual "In The Zone" enforcement campaign is to ensure high officer visibility and proactive enforcement in and around school zones during the first week back to school. DRPS would like to thank local school officials and members of the public for supporting this traffic initiative.
