Approximately 500 speeding tickets laid during first month of Safe Under 7 summer traffic initiative

The Peterborough Police Service continues its Safe Under 7 summer traffic initiative to improve road safety in residential neighbourhoods.

During June, the first month of the project, 496 speeding tickets were issued.

“This is nearly double the number of tickets laid during the month of May,” says Traffic Sergeant Peter Sejrup.

“This project is in direct response to complaints and concerns from residents about motorists speeding in their neighbourhood. The response so far has been resoundingly positive. We appreciate the support of the community in attempting to keep their neighbourhoods safe places to live and play.”

The Safe Under 7 Campaign takes a zero tolerance approach to motorists driving in excess of 7 km/h over the posted speed limit in residential neighbourhoods. The campaign is running for the months of June, July and August. #SafeUnder7
