The Traffic Unit with the Guelph Police Service say a GO Transit bus was stopped on Gordon St. today driving 21 kilometres over the posted speed limit of 50.

A Tweet sent Tuesday afternoon by the Traffic Unit said the bus, which had no passengers on board at the time, was stopped On Gordon St. south of Stone Rd. 

On Wednesday, a Guelph Transit bus carrying 22 passengers was stopped going 22 kilometres over the posted limit on Gordon St. near Stone Rd.

The Traffic Unit's two week traffic enforcement initiative named Project Corridor began Nov. 5, targeting unsafe driving, cycling and pedestrian activities on Gordon Street from Clair Road to Waterloo Avenue.

In the first week of enforcement, Traffic Services said a total of 112 charges were laid, including 61 speeding and 12 distracted driving charges.

According to statistics released by Guelph Police Service earlier this month, 149 collisions have been investigated along Gordon St. Between Waterloo Ave. and Clair Road so far this year, 44 of which included personal injuries.

That number is in addition to 111 incidents reported to the Collision Reporting Centre.

Guelph Police Service is conducting Project Corridor in partnership with University of Guelph Police, Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health and the City of Guelph.

The project continues until Nov. 17, after which the Traffic Unit intends on providing a breakdown of enforcement numbers.
