This past week, Enforcement Officers from the City of Mississauga supported Peel Regional Police under Project Noisemaker and Eliminate Racing Activity on Streets Everywhere (E.R.A.S.E.) enforcing vehicle noise violations, street racing and gathering violations of the Reopening Ontario Act. Twenty-three tickets ($880) were issued for COVID-19 gathering violations and four tickets ($385) were issued for vehicle noise. Police also laid thirty-six Highway Traffic Act (HTA) charges related to speeding and dangerous driving.
“I applaud the efforts of our City of Mississauga Enforcement Officers supporting Peel Regional Police in Project Noisemaker & E.R.A.S.E. enforcing to make our City safe,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “The enforcement of these activities in our retail areas improves the safety and quality of life for all. This is especially important during the pandemic when gathering in large numbers presents a risk for everyone. We can’t afford to take chances during our recovery from the pandemic. It is my hope the news of these charges and fines travels and raises awareness that these activities will not be tolerated or ignored in our City and they come with consequences.”Continue reading City Partners with Peel Regional Police to Increase Community Safety While Reducing Speeding and Vehicle Noise
