The Town of Milton has launched its annual back-to-school traffic safety campaign, which aims to help both drivers and pedestrians stay safe in school zones.
With students back to in-school learning, drivers are being reminded to follow school zone rules and traffic regulations.
These include paying attention to pedestrians, signs and flashing lights near a school crossing, waiting until pedestrians and crossing guards have finished crossing the road before proceeding and obeying “no parking” and “no stopping” signs.
Drivers are also being reminded to obey school zone speed limits and to use designated drop-off zones as opposed to busy streets or intersections.
Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) has also launched Project Safe Start, an annual initiative that enforces road safety during the back-to-school period where they pay specific attention to speeding, seat belts, stop signs, school buses and school zone enforcement.
This campaign also focuses on education, awareness and high-visibility enforcement of traffic laws throughout Milton and Halton Region.
Milton’s Municipal Law Enforcement Unit will actively enforce the regulations around parking and traffic activity within local school zones while working closely with HRPS.
