Yesterday, Niagara Regional Police Service’s Traffic Enforcement Unit conducted a stop sign compliance initiative at the newly erected 4 Way Stop on Four Mile Creek Road at Line 3 Road in Niagara-on-the-Lake that did not go well.
During the 5 hour road safety initiative, Officers were unable to stop vehicles that were rolling through the stop signs, because of the nearly 40 violators who completely disobeyed the newly erected stop signs and drove through the intersection at speeds in excess of the legal allowable 60km/h maximum.
The majority of the violator’s stopped were local residents, with only two being from out of region. While Officers exercised their discretion and took the time to educate drivers, issuing more than 2 dozen provincial offence warnings, a number of drivers were also issued tickets for various moving violations.
The Niagara Regional Police Service is committed to ensuring that Traffic Management and Road Safety remains a year round priority and will continue with an increased presence at this intersection over the coming days. All roadway users are encouraged to be attentive and look twice before proceeding.
