554 traffic tickets, 65 warnings issued in Oshawa in May

Some 554 traffic tickets were issued by the Central East Division of the Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) during the month of May.

The division also issued 65 warning, said a tweet yesterday. “The @DRPSCEDiv Traffic Safety Team issued 554 tickets and gave out 65 warnings in May”.

No comparative figures for May 2021 or April this year were provided.

From most to least was speeding, ignoring stop signs, driving with suspended or no licence, noisy or defective vehicles, and disobeying signs, said the tweet.

The team pointed out that as schools close for the summer, residents need to be aware of more road users during the day.

The Central East Division oversees policing in the City of Oshawa. It is by far the busiest police jurisdiction in Durham Region, accounting for 24.21 per cent of all Calls for Service handled by Durham Police, according to the DRPS.
