Less Traffic Does Not Mean Less Enforcement

Posted On Friday March 27, 2020

Region of Peel – Provincial Social Distancing Guidelines came into effect on March 15, 2020 and as a result, more people are staying home and working from home.  There has been a noticeable reduction of vehicles on our roadways, which has resulted in little to no congestion.  The roads appear to be wide open however, this is not an invitation to exceed the speed limit.

Peel Regional Police are committed to road safety as a core policing function.  Our officers remain vigilant twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week; speeding, aggressive driving and impaired driving remain enforcement priorities for our officers.   Our officers will remain on-duty, enforcing our laws and ensuring that those that need to travel on our roadways can continue to do so in safety.

“Driving is privilege and road safety is a shared responsibility. Please, do not speed, do not use hand-held cellular devices and do not drive drunk or high.  The life you save could be your own or that of a loved one” said Acting Inspector Gary Carty of Road Safety Services.

As a community, we are all pulling together to get through this challenging time.  Please obey the rules of the road and help us keep them as safe as possible.
