Police Working to Protect Vulnerable Road Users in Milton and Halton Hills

Halton Police will be working to protect vulnerable road users in Milton and Halton Hills during the first two weeks of August.

According to a recent press release, police will be targeting intersections controlled by traffic signals during the first two weeks of August. 

During this project – ‘Stop on Red’ – more officers will be located at intersections that have high collision rates.

And, as mentioned, “The overall aim of the enforcement effort is to protect vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists who face the risk of drivers failing to stop on a red light when turning right,” reads the release.

If a driver is caught by police for failing to stop for a red light they will receive a ticket with a set fine of $325, and upon conviction have three demerit points added to their licence.

In addition to police enforcement, Halton Region operates five red light camera locations in Milton and three in Halton Hills. These locations are:

Town of Milton:

  • Derry Road and Commercial Street/Santa Maria Blvd
  • Derry Road and James Snow Parkway
  • Derry Road and Ontario Street
  • Derry Road and Savoline Blvd
  • Derry Road and Trafalgar Rd

Town of Halton Hills:

  • 10 Side Road and Eighth Line
  • 10 Side Road and Ninth Line
  • Trafalgar Road and 5 Side Road
