Delta police handed out more than 100 tickets during a long weekend traffic blitz.

The department took part in Operation Impact - an initiative of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police - over the Thanksgiving weekend.

"This special initiative from the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police set out to focus on safe driving practices, and was timed in conjunction with Canada's Thanksgiving holiday weekend, when the traveling public were out in vast numbers," said Delta police spokesperson Const. Ciaran Feenan.

"It was a coordinated effort between police agencies across the country to work toward the goal of Road Safety Vision 2011 - making Canada's roads the safest in the world."

The department's traffic and patrol sections were at selected locations throughout Delta over the long weekend and were focused on specific offences: aggressive driving, seatbelt violations, distracted driving and impaired driving.

Officers issued 104 tickets over the course of the weekend, taking "one more step in making Delta's roads the safest in B.C.," Feenan said.
