From Aug. 2-16, the number of speeders charged jumped 608 percent – to 85 from 12 – compared to the same period last summer with Saugeen Shores Police Service’s “Operation Slow Your Roll” focused on traffic safety.

Instances of speeding charges soared by 608 percent – to 85 from 12 – during “Operation Slow Your Roll”, a traffic safety campaign by Saugeen Shores Police Service.

From Aug. 2-16 police focused on speeding, in response to repeated social media complaints about traffic concerns in Saugeen Shores.

Police issued 85 speeding tickets, including one for street racing, from Aug. 2-16.
During the same period last year – when no traffic safety campaign was operating – 12 speeders were charged.

In an Aug. 17 press release police said the high visibility traffic enforcement continues because “reducing speeds is proven to save lives.”
