The project involved APD traffic officers, aided by several other APD units, spending at least an hour at each of the more than 30 elementary schools in Abbotsford.

The APD hinted on social media that more traffic-enforcement projects are coming.

Road safety is ALL our responsibility! What is this project? 30 school zones enforced in 30 hours Over the past two days, the AbbyPD's Traffic Enforcement Unit conducted a school zone enforcement blitz. During this time, officers provided over 30 hours of targeted enforcement at 34 elementary schools in Abbotsford. Road and school zone safety is a priority whenever school is in session – not just at the start of a new school year. Motorists are reminded to always comply with school speed zones, and to remain especially vigilant during inclement weather when visibility is reduced, and roads may be slick.
