Traffic officers with 43 Division are targeting the intersection near Kingston Road and Beechgrove Drive, in Scarborough, after a recent police study found vehicles in the area were regularly traveling 20 to 30 km/h above the posted 60 km/h speed limit.
The CBC's Trevor Dunn said what police were finding confirmed the results of the study and that one vehicle they stopped was traveling 87 km/h.

Along with educating drivers on the speed limit, the safety initiative that began around 6 a.m. was focused on drivers operating vehicles without insurance, suspended drivers and other traffic offences.
Dunn said police handed one male driver a $240 fine for not wearing his seatbelt.
