SASKATOON – Members of the Saskatoon Police Service are nearly done conducting the semi-annual ‘Operation Street Sweep’ in the city.

Traffic unit officers are busy checking vehicles and looking for a variety of safety infractions like speeding and improper cellphone and seatbelt use.

Street Sweep was launched Monday morning and switches locations each day.

On Wednesday, officers were stationed on Clarence Avenue and 22nd Street. Tomorrow’s targeted areas are not yet known.

During the first half of the four-day operation, 403 tickets were issued to motorists.

The last operation of this kind yielded 301 tickets and 957 vehicle equipment violations in May 2013.

Operation Street Sweep ends Thursday and is expected to return in the fall.
