Lead-footed drivers and those who roll through stop signs in and around school zones in Mississauga and Brampton are in the crosshairs of Peel Regional Police. 

Schools across Peel have been reopened to young students for a month now, but patrol officers in addition to members of the Peel police Road Safety Services unit are still keeping a close watch on motorists in school zones—particularly elementary schools. 

A recent enforcement blitz in front of St. Edith Stein Elementary School in Meadowvale resulted in 22 charges laid against drivers, police say. 

Officers were specifically targeting speeders and drivers who disobey stop signs in the area of the Osprey Blvd. school, near Tenth Line W. and Britannia Rd. W. 

“Drivers are reminded to adjust their driving in school zones,” police say. 

As always, police add, they’re on the lookout for motorists who disobey the stop arms and flashing red signal lights of stopped school buses as well.
