  • S.T.E.P. - Strategic Traffic Enforcement Program


    Smiths Falls Police utilize the Strategic Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) as part of our ongoing commitment to improve road safety.

    STEP works by having our officers focus enforcement on different areas of concern each month regarding drivers, vehicles and traffic. The subject of enforcement is based on problems identified through collisions, officer observations and citizen concerns.

    STEP can be an effective tool in correcting driver errors, addressing unsafe vehicles and improving traffic. Citizens are encouraged to contact our service if they have concerns over specific traffic related issues they would like to see as a focus of STEP.

    The ultimate goal of STEP is to make our roads safer for everyone in our community.


    STEP for February 2019 - Winter Driving Safety



    Winter weather brings smow covered and icy roads. Motorists must learn to drive to the road conditions, If You See Snow Go Slow!

    Excessive speed, maintaining proper following distance and having a clear view in all directions will help in avoiding collisions or ending up in the ditch.

    Failing to have a clear view through all the windows of your vehicle, not only is harazrdous, it carries a $110.00 dollar fine. Also, clearing the snow and ice off the roof of you vehicle will prevent it from blinding other motorists or worse striking another vehicle and causing damage.

    Following too closely the vehicle in front of you will not allow sufficient braking distance especially on icy roads.

    This is only a partial listing of the regulations and laws. Please visit the Smiths Falls Police Website at www.sfps.ca for further information and links. Smiths Falls Police Officers will be enforcing these and all infractions of the Law including the Highway Traffic Act, keeping our roadways safe.

    If you would like to report any of these infractions please call the Smiths Falls Police Service at 613-283-0357 or for an emergency 911 or your local police service.
