Guelph Police Taking Part in Project ERASE

Web posted on April 19, 2017

The Guelph Police Service and our law enforcement partners from across the Greater Toronto Area are delivering the message that street racing and stunt driving will not be tolerated on the streets.

The launch of this year's Project E.R.A.S.E will take place on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at 11 a.m. in the parking lot of Canada's Wonderland.

Members of the media wishing to attend may access the event using the employee entrance at Amusement Drive and Major MacKenzie Drive West.

Excessive speed has consistently been the greatest contributing factor in many fatal collisions that have occurred province wide. Street racers put themselves and unsuspecting road users at risk of death or serious injury when they chose to disobey traffic laws and drive without due care and control and with disregard for public safety.

Call 9-1-1 if you see dangerous driving practices that could cause personal injury or loss of life. When contacting police, try to note the vehicles location, direction of travel, make, model, licence plate number and drivers description.

E.R.A.S.E. (Eliminate Racing Activity on Streets Everywhere) is an awareness and enforcement campaign operated jointly by police services across Ontario in partnership with the Government of Ontario, with the goal of eliminating street racing and other high risk driving behaviors.

Aggressive driving and street racing are dangerous, unlawful activities which put innocent people at risk of injury or death. The real finish line may be court, fines, jail, vehicle seizure, a loss of driving privileges or even worse, the hospital or the morgue.

For further information please contact A/Sergeant Dan MOSEY of the Guelph Police Service Traffic and School Safety Unit at (519)824-1212 extension 7225.
