This charge comes after the City of Hamilton launched an advertising campaign as part of its ongoing crackdown on speeding and aggressive driving.

Speed Kills is in response to an average of 3,600 collisions each year on Hamilton roads and it includes radio and movie theatre advertising.

The campaign, funded through red light camera revenues, also encourages people to commit to improving their driving habits by signing the Hamilton Road Safety Pledge.
