Pedestrian and driver-safety tips in school zones


Pedestrian and driver-safety tips in school zones

Monday, April 24, 2017 - 10:44 AM
Traffic Services:  416-808-1900

The Toronto Police Service would like to remind drivers about the safe operation of vehicles in and around school zones.

Improving road safety and traffic flow for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists is one of our goals in support of the Service priority and commitment to safe communities and neighbourhoods. 

The need to be aware and alert at all times on any road, and even in the most routine
circumstances, is a key component to moving through traffic safely. This applies to
pedestrians, drivers, cyclists, and transit-users alike. 

We ask those who drive to take extra care on the roads and in parking lots, especially in areas where children and seniors might be present.

Pedestrians/Transit-Users Tips

Parents and caregivers can help reinforce some of these pedestrian-safety messages to children, as well as some of our more vulnerable seniors and transit-users.

- Stop, look, listen and think before entering the roadway
- Utilize crossings at controlled areas, intersections and crosswalks
- Make eye contact with drivers and other road-users
- Wear reflective or bright clothing whenever possible
- Never run onto the roadway
- Do not attempt to cross the road mid-block from between vehicles
- Obey crossing signals and signs
- If present, utilize the school crossing guard, where applicable, to assist you in crossing the road


Driver-Safety Tips 

A driver who is aware and alert can avoid potential hazards and other distractions.

General Driving Tips:

- Scan to identify pedestrians and cyclists entering the road from curbs and driveways or when approaching intersections
- Scan to identify pedestrians attempting to cross the road between vehicles, look for the movement of a pedestrians' feet below the bumper of vehicles 
- Be prepared for the unexpected, avoid using distracting devices
- Leave at least 2-3 seconds following distance between you and vehicles ahead
- In fog, rain, snow or darkness, use your full headlighting system. Remember, when conditions require you to use your windshield wipers, you should turn on your headlights as well
- Use rear-view and outside mirrors often and frequently check your speed

Parking tips for drivers in or near school zones

- Parking vehicles in no-stopping, no-standing or no-parking areas puts children at risk and causes unnecessary traffic congestion
- Use designated drop-off and pick-up areas where available
- For local residents near schools, try walking your child to school. This helps to reduce the congestion of vehicles around the schools and adjoining streets. This helps to reduce the danger to children in or near school zones

Police alerting public to scam targeting gemstone owners, Gemstone Investment Fraud Investigation

Friday, April 7, 2017 - 2:57 PM
Financial Crimes:  416-808-7300

The Toronto Police Service Financial Crimes unit is currently investigating a gemstone investment fraud and would like to speak with other potential victims.

It is reported that:

- representatives using the names "Royal Fine Jewels" as well as "Nygard & Associates" contacted people purporting themselves to be in the business of sales and marketing of fine gems and jewelry

- the individuals who were contacted had originally bought gemstones as an investment from a company no longer in business called Global Royalties Limited

- the individuals who were contacted were promised generous returns on their original gemstone investments and began marketing them with these companies

- during the marketing process opportunities for even greater investment returns were offered by either purchasing additional gemstones or trading in what they already owned for more expensive gemstones wanted by prospective buyers

- individuals victimized by these businesses were eventually told a buyer has been found and to sign sales agreements promising sizable returns on their investments to date

- the sales agreements were never fulfilled, and victims were left with gemstones valued at a fraction of what they were purported to be worth 

- victims are unable to contact business representatives because all methods of contact have been disconnected

Anyone who has conducted business with Royal Fine Jewels or Nygard & Associates and believes they may be a victim, or anyone with information on persons representing these companies, is asked to contact Detective Constable Kevin Williams at 416-808-7306, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com, or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637).
