Operation Impact 2022: Put Your Best Foot Forward

Halton Region, ON – Tomorrow marks the beginning of Operation Impact 2022, an annual national public awareness campaign aimed at making Canada's roads the safest in the world. By promoting safe driving behaviours, we hope to help prevent collisions, save lives, and reduce injuries on our roads.


From October 7th to 10th, 2022, police across the country will be focused on behaviours that put drivers, passengers, and other road users at risk: impaired driving due to alcohol, drugs or fatigue, as well as aggressive driving, distracted driving, and driving without a seat belt.

Most collisions are not ‘accidents’; they are generally the direct result of a conscious decision an individual driver has made. This year, our message to residents in our community is to ‘Put your best foot forward’. Drivers are expected to do this by ‘putting the brakes on’ bad driving behaviours.


“Traffic remains a key public safety and wellbeing concern among Halton residents, year in and year out,” said Sergeant Will Clayton of Traffic Services. “This Thanksgiving weekend, our Service is pleased to join agencies from coast-to-coast as we seek to make our roads safer for all those who use them.”


Each year, motor vehicle collisions kill about 2,000 Canadians, seriously injure another 10,000 people, and injure about 165,000 citizens in this country.


It is not a coincidence that the timing of this campaign to achieve safer streets and highways takes place during this long weekend. More people are travelling, and collisions are therefore more frequent.


Operation Impact is organized by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, under the leadership of the CACP Traffic Safety Committee, in support of Canada’s Road Safety Strategy 2025.
