Annual Project ERASE Program Launched by Peel Regional Police

By May 30, 2023May 31st, 2023Announcement

On Thursday, May 25th, Peel Regional Police announced the annual Project ERASE Program (Eliminating Racing Activities on Streets Everywhere) to change poor driver behaviour through education and strategic enforcement. Every May to October, the project targets street racing across Peel and across the GTA in collaboration with multiple police partners.

Street racing is an illegal and dangerous activity that jeopardizes the lives of innocent people. To ensure utmost safety on our roads, we will have zero tolerance for dangerous driving behaviours and street racing activities.

Drivers are reminded that they will be subject to charges and penalties for offences under the Highway Traffic Act (HTA) and breaking municipal by-laws; and could face seizure of their vehicles and a roadside suspension of their driver’s licence.

Road safety is a crucial policing function, and one which all members of Peel Regional Police are committed to. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, officers continue to enforce the speed limit, address aggressive and impaired driving, in addition to a variety of other road safety measures.

Anyone with information concerning aggressive driving or street racing activities in the Region of Peel is urged to contact 905-453-3311. Driving complaints can also be filed through the Road Watch portal on our website, by contacting Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or
