Police across Saskatchewan issued 352 tickets to motorists speeding in school zones as part of a province wide traffic blitz on Sept. 10 and 11.

A total of 835 tickets were issued during a Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) event hosted earlier this month, but approximately 42 per cent of the tickets issued were for exceeding the speed limit in a school zone.

An overview of the tickets issued is as follows:

• 352 tickets for speeding in a school zone;

• 179 other speeding tickets;

• 125 seatbelt violations;

• 61 cellphone violations;

• 30 tickets for failing to stop at stop sign/red light;

• 20 tickets for jaywalking;

• 8 tickets for failing to yield to a pedestrian;

• 60 various other tickets.

 During the STEP event, SGI car seat technicians were on hand to ensure children were secured in properly-fitting car or booster seats. They checked 66 seats and gave away six car and booster seats to make sure children were travelling safely.

August’s province-wide blitz focusing on intersection safety, Operation Crossroads, resulted in a total of 452 tickets.
