Traffic Tickets Slow down!

Good news for the drivers of the City of Toronto. Toronto police officers in preparation for the G20 Summit at the end of June 2010 are getting some relief from the army of officers sent out each day to ticket motorists for minor offenses.

Hundreds of uniform police officers are being deployed from traffic duties and speed enforcement to security for the G20. Many of the traffic officers had been assigned to doing motorcades for the dignitaries from other countries coming to Canada, and have spent the last couple of weeks doing training for the event. As such the usual thousands of speeding and traffic tickets issued each week has fallen off dramatically.

Expect the enforcement to resume after the summit in July 2010.
