Protecting Your Children

On Tuesday April 11, 2017, the Thunder Bay Police -Traffic Unit focused their attention on drivers who are not stopping for school buses who have their overhead lights on when they have stopped to pick up children. Additionally, they focused on enforcing the posted traffic speeds of 40 km/hr in school zones.

The officers were directed to areas where school bus drivers have reported ongoing issues with motorists. It was nice to see that the drivers we observed that day were obeying the law and did stop for the school buses when their lights were on. Kudos to those Thunder Bay drivers!

However, drivers need to pay more attention regarding their speeds in a posted in 40 km/hr school zones. Officers issues 42 tickets for speeding and other Highway Traffic Act violations. The highest speed observed in the 40 km/hr school zone was 70 km/ hr.

Thunder Bay Police would like to remind motorists to be more aware of their speeds in these school zones.
