Ontario Provincial Police say a recent traffic survey revealed three out of four vehicles are violating at least one traffic law at a busy intersection in Kenora, Ont.

The intersection of Main Street and Third Street South is seeing heavier traffic due to a detour.  The Kenora Detachment of the OPP conducted a survey at the intersection and found that 580 out of 776 vehicles observed were in violation of an offense under the Highway Traffic Act.

Violations included failure to stop at a stop sign, stopping at the stop sign in the wrong place, and failing to yield to pedestrians.  The OPP issued a news release reminding drivers that fines for the offenses range from $105 to $185.

Compliance was much better at the intersection of First Street South and Sixth Avenue South, where only 27 of 194 vehicles violated traffic laws.
