Surrey RCMP Traffic Services issued multiple violation tickets to drivers in Port Kells school and playground zones during a two day operation.
On September 27 and 28, officers with the Surrey RCMP Traffic Community Response Unit, Traffic Enforcement Unit and volunteers with Speed Watch conducted enforcement in the designated school and playground 30 km/h zones located in Port Kells on 88 Avenue between Harvie Road and 196 Street.
During the two day operation, officers issued approximately 40 violations tickets in total, two of those tickets were issued to one driver. The driver was pulled over in the school zone, and only minutes later (with the original ticket still in hand) pulled over by a second officer in the playground zone. In both instances the driver was travelling over double the posted 30 km/h limit, and two $253 tickets were issued.
This area has been brought to the attention of our Traffic Community Response Unit by residents and concerned community members. A deployment of Black CAT radar showed that 85% of the 41,859 vehicles that passed through the area were traveling at 67km/h or higher through the posted 30km/h zone.
Our dedicated traffic officers conduct enforcement and issue tickets to change driving behavior and make our roads safer for everyone, says Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn. Remember to do your part by watch your speed in school, park and construction areas in order to minimize collisions and keep pedestrians safe.
In addition to education and enforcement efforts, police are working with the City of Surrey and have made recommendations around increased signage along this stretch road.
Driving complaints can be reported using the Online Crime Reporting. If there is an emergency or immediate risk to you or someone else please call 911.
