Filing Traffic Reports Online: Public meeting August 15

Our office and the Ottawa Police Service invite you to attend a meeting August 15, 7pm at the Van Lang Fieldhouse to discuss how to report traffic issues to the police.

Traffic continue to be a main concern for residents of Kitchissippi Ward. The more we intensify, the more cars we seem to find on our streets. Our office gets multiple emails a day about cars that drive too fast, cruise through stop signs, or don’t follow various signage restrictions (local traffic, one-way, no right turns, etc).
