A traffic analysis study has identified Zorra and East Zorra-Tavistock as a problem area for collisions in Oxford County.
ZORRA/EAST ZORRA-TAVISTOCK - Zorra and East Zorra-Tavistock Townships have been identified as a problem area for collisions in the County.
The OPP recently did a collision analysis study with the Highway Safety Division in Western Ontario. They found that Oxford OPP had a high number of collisions happening in the northern townships.
With this in mind the HSD conducted focus patrols in that area last weekend for five hours. During that time they handed out 19 tickets for speeding. Most of the people caught were going between 35-45 kilometres over the posted speed limit.
Police are telling the public you can expect more targeted enforcement in that area.
Oxford OPP Detachment Commander Inspector Tim Clark says they are doing this to keep the public safe.
“I would like to remind the public that the HSD officers are not only patrolling the highways but assisting in ensuring the public are driving safely on all roadways. Through these OPP partnerships we can ensure we stay committed to ensuring public safety in our communities.”
