Peel Regional Police Project Noisemaker has been Launched

Posted On Wednesday July 01, 2020
 
Region of Peel –Road Safety Services will be launching Project Noisemaker, today, July 1, 2020. This project is designed to identify and reduce the number of motor vehicles with modified and/or excessively loud exhaust systems on Peel roads. The community concern for these vehicles has been apparent much more in residential areas during the day and night.

The Peel Regional Police will be conducting strict enforcement for the entire month of July. We encourage vehicle owners to repair modified exhaust systems and avoid using devices such as factory-issued mechanisms to alter and increase the sound of their vehicles in quiet, residential areas.

Vehicles will be subject to charges, including Improper Muffler and Unnecessary Noise contrary to the Highway Traffic Act. These charges include fines of $110 upon conviction.

Our commitment to road safety is a core policing function. Our officers remain vigilant twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week. Speeding, aggressive driving, and impaired driving remain enforcement priorities for our officers.

Anyone with information concerning aggressive driving or illegal street racing activities can contact the police by calling 905-453-3311. The public can also file a complaint through Road Watch or by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or at peelcrimestoppers.ca.

For media inquiries, please contact the on-duty Media Relations Officer at (905) 453-2121, ext. 4027.

Peel takes first step toward mandatory non-medical masks

Brampton, ON (June 30, 2020) – Today, Peel’s Medical Officer of Health and Mayors of Brampton, Mississauga and the Town of Caledon announced plans to explore measures, such as a temporary by-law, that would require residents to wear a non-medical mask inside public spaces to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“Peel Public Health already strongly supports the use of non-medical masks where distancing is not possible and on transit. A time-limited, broader bylaw mandating when and where non-medical masks must be used further strengthens these recommendations and protects Peel residents,” said Dr. Lawrence Loh, Medical Officer of Health, Region of Peel. “Together with the other Core Four behaviours of physical distancing, handwashing, getting tested and staying home if sick, more consistent use of non-medical masks by all residents in public spaces will help drive down cases and bring this first wave to a close in our community.”

Peel and its area municipalities in Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga join several other municipalities across Ontario weighing the issue of mandatory non-medical masks. They will continue to work together to develop the best approach to regulate masks in enclosed public areas across the region. Measures will be considered at upcoming Council meetings in July.

“Wearing a mask can serve as a visual reminder that these are not ordinary times, encourage the practice of the Core Four behaviour, and protect others,” says Nando Iannicca, Regional Chair, Region of Peel. “We have a handle on COVID-19 transmission right now. But the virus is not gone. We must continue to stop its spread and masks will help us do just that.”

Residents are reminded that masks must be worn properly. Wash your hands before and after you put on and take off a mask. Ensure the mask covers your nose and mouth completely. Do not touch the mask or otherwise move it until you are ready to remove it completely. If disposable, ensure that it is disposed appropriately once removed; reusable masks should be washed with regular laundry once removed.

Residents should also continue to practice physical distancing and wash their hands frequently. Get tested and stay home if you think you have symptoms of COVID-19 or were exposed to someone who does.

The Region of Peel works with residents and partners to create a healthy, safe and connected Community for Life for approximately 1.5 million people and over 175,000 businesses in the cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon. Peel’s services touch the lives of residents every day. For more information about the Region of Peel, explore peelregion.ca and follow us on Twitter @regionofpeel and Instagram @peelregion.ca.

Quotes from the mayors

We need to work together to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Wearing a non-medical mask in public spaces will do just that by keeping others safe. Follow Peel Public Health and the Government of Ontario’s guidelines on how to properly wear, fit, remove, and clean your non-medical mask to promote health and safety for all.

Patrick Brown, Mayor, City of Brampton

Wearing a mask when in a public space has been proven to be effective in stopping the spread of COVID 19. As a Region we are coming together to protect the health of our residents and communities.

Allan Thompson, Mayor, Town of Caledon

We may be done with the pandemic, but it is not done with us. We need to remain vigilant and take precautionary measures to reduce the severity of a second wave in the fall. Mandatory masks in indoor settings are something our residents have been asking for; together with the other Core Four behaviours, this will allow for a wider reopening of businesses.

Bonnie Crombie, Mayor, City of Mississauga

Region of Peel Notice Regarding Bulky Items

The decision to suspend bulky items at the curb and at our Community Recycling Centres was made early in our COVID response to protect the health and Currently, the Region’s waste collection staff have been leaving sticker notices on bulky items that have been left at the curb advising them to hold on to it until further notice.

The Region is now in a stronger position to provide appropriate resources and safety measures for bulky item collection, as well as sufficient physical distancing space for cars and residents at the Community Recycling Centres to allow residents to unload their own bulky items, without additional risk to staff.

As such, Community Recycling Centres are now accepting bulky items for drop-off. As social distancing measures continue at CRCs, please note that staff are not available to unload items and wait times may be longer. Bulky item collection at the curb will resume on June 29.

For more information on the Region’s waste services, check peelregion.ca/waste.

A few minutes later, a silver BMW sedan passed the complainant at a high rate of speed and cut in front of him.

Once the complainant turned onto Athinson Drive, the silver SUV lightly rear ended the complainant’s vehicle. Both cars pulled over to the side and the drivers exited their vehicles. At that point, the driver of the silver SUV apologized, then quickly got into the driver’s seat of the complainants vehicle in an attempt to steal it.
