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:
