To directly address street racing related activities, and the noise pollution from excessively loud vehicles on our roadways, Peel Regional Police is launching Project Noisemaker and ERASE on May 1, 2022.
For the next six months, these ongoing projects will target street racing activities in Peel Region and motor vehicles with modified and/or excessively loud exhaust systems on the roads. 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.
We remind the public that street racing is illegal and that it endangers the safety of everyone on the road. To ensure utmost safety on our roads, Peel Regional Police will have zero tolerance for dangerous driving behaviours and street racing activities.
Vehicle owners should repair modified exhaust systems; avoid altering factory-issued parts on vehicles that increase sound, and to ensure their vehicles comply with the regulations set out in the Highway Traffic Act.
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 peelcrimestoppers.ca.
