Halton police stepped up enforcement of traffic violations in Burlington Friday (Oct. 14) because of increased complaints.

Officers conducted a one-day targeted blitz around Waterdown Road where 150 traffic stops were initiated for Highway Traffic Act violations and 117 provincial offence notices were issued.

Halton Regional Police says it receives numerous traffic complaints provided by residents each day and conducts enforcement of traffic violations based on the information received.

“A large number of traffic complaints received by police relate to drivers exceeding the posted speed limits,” stated a Halton police press release. “Officers will continue to target areas throughout the City of Burlington that have been identified as high traffic complaint locations.”

Police continue to encourage residents to report traffic complaints online by visiting www.haltonpolice.ca/PRC/Pages/TrafficComplaints.aspx.

The Halton Regional Police Service says it is committed to reducing dangerous and aggressive driving behaviours that put all road users at risk.
