Eight police services will join Peel Regional Police in Mississauga for an announcement on a street racing campaign called Project E.R.A.S.E.

Police have been targeting street racing and stunt driving in Mississauga and Brampton for the last few months.

Westwood Square in Mississauga has been a particular issue with cars tearing around the shopping mall parking lot, keeping neighbouring residents awake.

The press conference on the Project E.R.A.S.E. (Eliminate Racing Activity on Streets Everywhere) campaign is scheduled for today (May 25) at 11 a.m., Peel Regional Police said in a press release.

Project E.R.A.S.E. is an awareness and enforcement campaign with the goal of eliminating street racing and other high-risk driving behaviours.

Collaborating on this campaign are Barrie Police, Durham Regional Police, Halton Regional Police, Hamilton Police, the Ontario Provincial Police, Toronto Police, Waterloo Regional Police, York Regional Police and the Ministry of Transportation.
