Halton Regional Police says it is stepping up enforcement of traffic violations in Burlington due to increasing complaints.
“Residential speeding and failure to comply with stop signs continues to be a high priority for the residents of Burlington,” stated a Halton police press release.
A large number of traffic complaints received by both the Halton police and the City of Burlington relates to drivers exceeding the posted speed limits and drivers failing to comply with stop signs on residential streets.
“The Halton Regional Police Service is initiating the Residential Traffic/Stop Sign/Speeding initiative in order to deliver a clear message to drivers that our residential roads are not raceways,” said Halton police.
The traffic safety program is also designed to increase adherence to stop signs.
Police say they will use education and enforcement in order to reduce the speeds of vehicles travelling on residential roadways and to promote safer driving habits.
