Stratford traffic blitz nets 53 charges

Stratford Gazette

The second 4 Counties Traffic Initiative to be conducted in Stratford this year resulted in 53 charges being laid and nine warnings and compliance tickets.

On Thursday, eight officers from the Stratford Police Service and London, Aylmer, Strathroy-Caradoc, St. Thomas and OPP services conducted targeted enforcement in various locations throughout the city.

The focus once again was on road safety.

Thirty-two drivers were caught speeding. The highest speed recorded was 88 km/h in a 60 km/h zone on Erie Street.

Other offences included driving without proof of insurance, not stopping at a stop sign, not wearing a seatbelt, using a cellphone, driving with an expired validation sticker, and no ownership.

Comparatively, officers from the four counties laid 81 charges on drivers in Stratford when the initiative was run this past April.
