For the last couple of months, drivers have surely had to deal with fewer pedestrians around school zones, but that will change on Tuesday September 6.
A new school year is kicking off and kids are returning to classes, and Toronto police want to make sure drivers obey all the rules around school zones.
The “Are You FOCUSED On School” Campaign (Frequent Offences the Community and Road Users See Every Day), launches at Second Street Junior Middle School, 71 Second Street, and officers, along with TDSB representatives, will be conducting an enforcement initiative.
They will be paying close attention to drivers, cyclists and pedestrians who commit offences around school zones, including pedestrian crossovers, crosswalks, distracted driving, and around “No Stopping” and “No Parking” areas.
The campaign will run until Friday.
