August STEP to focus on speeding, pedestrian safety

Pedestrian safety and speeding will be front of mind for police officers in the national capital region for the month of August.

It's part of the selective traffic enforcement program that partners Ottawa Police with the RCMP, OPP, Military Police and Gatineau Police to focus on specific areas of road safety.

Thirty-three pedestrians were killed in collisions between 2009 and 2013.

In the same time period, 75 people were killed in accidents involving speeding.
