Road safety reminder by Huronia West OPP after six offences handed in 15 mins

OPP

Huronia West OPP are reminding motorists to slow down through community safety and school zones.

Officers say they were conducting traffic enforcement on Mosley Street in the Community Safety Zone/School Zone - traffic lights activated making it a 40km/h zone - Friday morning.

"Six Provincial Offence Notices (PON) were issued within 15 minutes," OPP stated in a release.

"It is imperative to be always mindful and aware of our pedestrians and children in all areas, especially community safety zones. Officers and traffic units will be conducting patrols in these areas throughout the year with extra patrols being conducted during school hours."

OPP remind drivers that fines are increased within zones identified with signs stating Community Safety Zone - Fines Increased.

For Drivers

Stay Focused: Devote your full attention to the road, minimizing unnecessary distractions while driving.

Mind School Zones: Exercise caution in school zones by adhering to posted speed limits. Given the substantial number of children commuting to and from school via bus, foot, and bicycle.

School Bus Awareness: Be vigilant of school buses displaying flashing lights. Passing a school bus with activated lights incurs a fine of $490 and six demerit points.

Crosswalks: Ensure you are following the direction of traffic signs and signals. If a crossing guard is present, please follow their direction and wait until both the students and the crossing guard are completely off the roadway before proceeding.

"The OPP and Traffic Safety partners remain committed to saving lives on our roads. For safety and crime prevention tips, please visit our website at www.opp.ca," OPP added.
