Here’s Why Halton Police Laid More Than 300 Charges This November

 

Halton Police recently laid over 300 charges in Milton and Halton Hills.

Here’s why.

According to Halton Police, throughout the month of November officers from the District Response Unit assisted by Patrol Officers targeted aggressive drivers in Milton and Halton Hills.

This was part of Project Rural Impact, an annual enforcement initiative.

This enforcement initiative takes place each year since speeding and aggressive driving is still a concern amongst many rural residents.

During the project, three drivers were caught speeding at least 50 km/h over the limit. These drivers got their license suspended and also had their vehicles seized for seven days.

A total of 351 charges were laid, these charges are listed below.

205 charges - speeding between 1-15km/h over the limit

58 charges - speeding 16-29km/h over the limit

54 charges - speeding 30-49km/h over the limit

2 charges - speeding in a construction zone with a worker present between 1-15 km/h over the limit

1 charge - speeding in a construction zone with a worker present between 16-29 km/h over the limit

2 charges - speeding in a construction zone between 16-29 km/h over the limit

1 charge - speeding in a construction zone between 30-49 km/h over the limit

1 charge - speeding in a community safety zone 50 plus Km/h over the limit

3 charges - speeding 50 plus km/h over the limit

3 charges - stunt driving

19 charges - disobey stop sign fail to stop

1 charge - fail to stop for school bus

1 charge - interfere with traffic

I’d like to encourage all drivers to drive according to the road and weather conditions but to be especially mindful of their speed, going too fast limits a drivers ability to safely negotiate unexpected hazards and results in more severe collisions and injuries,” Sergeant Paul Rudall of the District Response Unit said in a recent press release.

Please drive safely as we approach the Holiday Season.”
