Operation Impact 2022 Campaign Results

Annual long weekend initiative results in more than 150 charges for driving-related offences in Halton Region


Halton Region, ON – The results are in for Operation Impact 2022 in Halton Region. Operation Impact is an annual national public awareness initiative spearheaded by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, under the leadership of the CACP Traffic Safety Committee, that aims to make Canada’s roads the safest in the world.


Key areas of focus for this year’s campaign, which ran over the October 7-10th Thanksgiving long weekend, were impaired driving due to alcohol, drugs or fatigue, as well as aggressive driving, distracted driving, and driving without a seat belt.


Over the course of four days, members of the Halton Regional Police Service’s District Response Teams and uniform patrol officers issued a total of 130 Provincial Offence Notices (tickets) for traffic-related offences to drivers throughout the region. Seventy-four (74) drivers received written warnings.


Seven people were also charged with impaired driving related charges over the long weekend.


“Collisions don’t take weekends and holidays off. The reality is that most are the direct result of a conscious decision that an individual driver has made – be it to speed, to drive distracted, or to drive impaired by alcohol, drugs or fatigue”, said Sergeant Will Clayton, Regional Traffic Services. “The Halton Regional Police Service will continue to focus on behaviours that put drivers, passengers and all road users at risk each and every day of the year.”
