Over the Victoria Day long weekend, May 19-21, officers from the Sault Police Service were deployed on focused patrols to monitor and address traffic concerns. This was part of their Canada Road Safety Week initiative.
As a result of the focused patrols, officers conducted 50 traffic stops over the three days. As a result 33 charges were laid, including 31 charges for speeding under the Highway Traffic Act. In addition, one charge was laid for driving without a current validation permit and one charge was laid for driving with an improperly displayed validation permit.
To everyone using our roadways, please slowdown and get to your destination safely. Serious injury or death is not worth the risk.
