Monitoring the areas near schools in Burlington has led to several tickets for speeders and other offenders.

Halton police stationed at the schools say the results show that many drivers continually ignore the rules of the road.

All tickets were issued this morning (Feb. 21).

On Plains Road near Maplehurst Public School police say several vehicles were pulled over and given speeding tickets.

One driver was issued a ticket amounting to $474 for travelling at a rate of 72 km/h in a Community Safety Zone where the maximum is 40 km/h.

As well, school zone enforcement at St. John Catholic Elementary School on Brant Street led to charges against a driver.

In this case, police say the motorist was pulled over for failing to stop at a stop sign. Upon further investigation, officers found the person was already under suspension for using a cellphone while driving. This offence carries an immediate seven-day vehicle impoundment and a charge of driving with a suspended licence.
