The North Bay Police Service’s traffic enforcement officer, working together with three platoon officers, conducted a targeted traffic enforcement over a three-hour period yesterday (Wednesday, November 9th, 2016) on Airport Road, which has a recently lowered 60 km/hour speed limit.
During the traffic enforcement a total of 22 drivers were issued speeding tickets with the highest speed registered at 104 kilometres an hour.
Seven drivers were given 72-hour notices for documentation or equipment infractions.
“Enforcing speed limits is part of a police officer’s responsibilities,” said Cst. Ken Ayres, Traffic Enforcement Officer, North Bay Police Service.
“A driver is responsible for respecting the rules of the road. Our shared responsibility is to ensure that our roads are safe for all who use them, whether they are drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, or other.”
The North Bay Police Service will continue to conduct targeted traffic enforcement. Drivers who are disrespecting speed limits are reminded that driving is a privilege, not a right. They are advised to slow down.
