More than 300 charges were laid by Peel police during Operation Impact over Thanksgiving weekend.

“The deaths, pain and broken hearts that result from carelessness behind the wheel can be prevented,” said Insp. Paul Pogue.
“Police agencies across the country are collaborating on this project because they have seen more than enough pain. Police believe the involvement of the public is essential to achieve safer streets and highways.”
The national campaign, which ran Oct. 7 to 11, wrapped with 311 Highway Traffic Act charges, including 24 distracted driving charges, 35 seatbelt infractions, and 252 speeding tickets.
In addition, 15 drinking and driving charges were processed.
Nineteen people have died in 2016 collisions in Peel Region, with many more injured.
