Ottawa police officers have issued nearly 100 fines for speeding and stunt driving since launching the 2021 edition of Project Noisemaker.

The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) relaunched the initiative on Saturday, May 1, as a way to reduce speeding and stunt driving after that behaviour saw a significant rise amid the pandemic more than a year ago.

84 Highway Traffic Act fines were handed out on Saturday -- 64 of which were for speeding, and one for stunt driving. 

Last year, officers stopped an average of ten stunt drivers per week and issued 2,300 tickets, including roughly 1,400 for speeding during the initiative.
