Ottawa Enforcement targetting Ottawa drivers who fail to stop and run red lights, Ottawa lawyer David Hollingsworth
Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth… The City of Ottawa’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) will be focussing on Ottawa motorists who run red lights and those who don’t fully comply with stop signs as part of its ongoing commitment to keeping Ottawa’s roads safe during the month of May.
Ottawa Accidents: Running Red Lights
Red light running has become a serious issue on Ottawa roadways. In 2010, 764 accidents occurred due to Ottawa drivers failing to stop for red lights. These accidents resulted in 372 personal injuries, of which, 11 of them were life-threatening personal injuries.
Ottawa Accidents: Stop Sign Violations
In 2010, 1,618 Ottawa accidents occurred at stop sign intersections, which resulted in 6 deaths and 492 personal injuries, of which 23 injuries were life-threatening.
I am so thankful that Ottawa has these initiatives to support the larger Safer Roads Ottawa Program, a leading partnership between Ottawa Fire Services, Ottawa Paramedic Service, Ottawa Police Service, Ottawa Public Health and the Public Works Department , who are all committed to preventing or eliminating road accidents, deaths and serious personal injuries for Ottawa residents, through culture change, community engagement, and development of a sustainable safe transportation environment.
