Tomorrow, officers from five area police services will team up with London Police Traffic Management Unit (TMU) members to fan out across the city to enforce road rules. Officers from London, Aylmer, Stratford, St. Thomas, Woodstock and Strathroy-Caradoc police services will be focused on enforcing traffic law regarding aggressive driving, distracted driving and seatbelt use as part of the annual ‘Four Counties’ traffic initiative.
This is the second week that the LPS worked alongside other services for traffic enforcement in the city. On Friday, September 7, 2018, our TMU held a Commercial Motor Vehicle Blitz during which 18 inspections were conducted resulting in 42 Provincial Offence Notices issued, and seven vehicles taken out of service.
“Speeding, ignoring traffic lights and stop signs, and driving while focused on your cell phone instead of the road impact the safety of all of us,” said Sergeant Sean Harding, head of the LPS Traffic Management Unit.
“Please focus on what you’re doing behind the wheel,” Sgt. Harding said. “Commit to eliminating the distractions within your vehicle. Slow down, plan for delays, share the road and be courteous.”
