  • S.T.E.P. - Strategic Traffic Enforcement Program

    Smiths Falls Police utilize the Strategic Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) as part of our ongoing commitment to improve road safety.

    STEP works by having our officers focus enforcement on different areas of concern each month regarding drivers, vehicles and traffic. The subject of enforcement is based on problems identified through collisions, officer observations and citizen concerns.

    STEP can be an effective tool in correcting driver errors, addressing unsafe vehicles and improving traffic. Citizens are encouraged to contact our service if they have concerns over specific traffic related issues they would like to see as a focus of STEP.

    The ultimate goal of STEP is to make our roads safer for everyone in our community.

    STEP for June 2016 - Vehicle Safety and Fitness

    Every year in Ontario there are numerous, preventable Motor Vehicle Collisions that are caused by a faulty Motor Vehicle.

    In 2009 there were over 400,000 Motor Vehicle Collisions. Of these, 200 Motor Vehicle Collisions were caused by Defective Brakes and 47 Motor Vehicle Collisions caused by Defective Steering.

    These are not the only causes of a Motor Vehicle Collision. There is Tire Puncture/ Tire Blowout, Insufficient Tire Tread, Defective Head Lamps, Defective Suspensions, Vision Obscured and the list goes on.

    Under the Highway Traffic Act of Ontario there are fines starting at $110.00 for some of these Defective items and the fines can increase depending on the infraction as well you may have to appear in Court and your vehicle can be towed from the Roadway.

    The STEP (Strategic Traffic Enforcement Program) for the Smiths Falls Police Service for the month of June is vehicle safety and fitness. The Smiths Falls Police Service will be looking for and enforcing these sections of the Highway Traffic and all rules of the Road.
