    • Annual national / provincial campaigns
    • Seasonal road safety topics  (e.g.. impaired driving in December and school bus / school zone traffic safety in September and March)
    • Dates of Safer Roads Ottawa campaigns and initiatives
    • For information on the priorities for each month, visit: https://www.ottawapolice.ca/en/about-us/safer-roads-ottawa.asp
  5. Speeding remains one of the top causes of injuries and fatalities on Ontario Roadways.  In 2015, the Ottawa Police issued 15,318 tickets for speeding.  This number was up 370 from 2014.
