“Operation Overwatch” update

Since launching Operation Overwatch on April 25th the combined efforts of Ottawa Police Frontline and Traffic Services officers resulted in over 1500 Speeding tickets being issued across the city.

This past week (June 1st-8th) we issued a total of 138 Speeding charges, 27 Warnings and four Vehicles were towed for Stunt driving (50+km/h over the posted limit).

“We’re working on road safety with an enforcement perspective. But there is more at play, considering road safety impacts everyone,” Sgt. Craig Roberts, Ottawa Police Traffic Case Manager.

“We encourage the public to continue to submit traffic enforcement requests online. We make good use of Intelligence-led tools at hand, including public complaints, to ensure our resources are deployed to problematic locations throughout the city,” added Staff Sergeant Marc-André Sheehy, of the Traffic Services Unit.

“Whether it’s a car, truck or motorcycle speeding down city streets day or night, it’s not acceptable and we’re going to continue to hold to account those drivers putting our friends and family at risk,” concluded Sgt. Craig Roberts.

Operation Overwatch focuses on High Speeds, Stunt Driving/Riding and Street Racing and will continue throughout the summer. You can make a traffic complaint online.
