2,761 speeding tickets were issued by Guelph Police during the first six-and-a-half months of this year.

And 134-drivers were ticketed for distracted driving during the first half of the year.
That ticket can be as high as $1,000, and comes with 3 demerit points.
Another 110 drivers failed to stop at a red light. That’s $260 and 3 demerit points.
