Recently, some Guelph residents have expressed concern that “at fault” drivers who are reporting their collisions to the Collision Reporting Centre at 160 Clair Road are not being held accountable.
In response to the feedback, the Guelph Police Traffic and School Safety Division reviewed collision statistics from October. They found that 45 per cent of those collisions reported to the CRC could have resulted in Highway Traffic Act charges.
So now, as of November 1st, police have been issuing charges at the Reporting Centre.
Public Information Officer, Constable Mike Gatto says the CRC will accept witness statements, photos and other evidence, and can have police review it to determine if charges are warranted.
