Targeted Enforcement Update

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that the Barrie Police conducted targeted enforcement on Ferndale Drive on Wednesday June 17th, and issued 12 disobey sign (Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) travelling on the roadway) tickets and 4 noise related tickets.

They are trying to do the same in all areas of the City and will revisit that location soon.

*Please keep in mind that CMV’s are allowed to use the prohibited portion if they are contracted by the City and/or have business (deliveries etc) in the surrounding area which is accessible by the prohibited area.

They were back doing enforcement on Ferndale Drive yesterday. I haven’t received the data from that blitz yet.

Some of you have also helped me to notify the Barrie Police about cars in our neighbourhood which violate noise limits. These license plates/drivers will be investigated and fined accordingly under the Highway Traffic Act. In the traffic officer’s own words, “Please keep the information coming.”

I should also be getting an update on when speed cameras will be coming to City Council for discussion and voting, as well as permanent speed-bumps which are conducive to our winters and plowing.

Stay tuned! And thank you for all of your help with improving the safety of our ward.
