Belleville Police Traffic Safety Unit Notice


Belleville ON - This past Wednesday & Thursday, the Belleville Police Service Traffic Safety Unit issued 500 written warnings to drivers with license plates in poor condition, or covered in any way.


Motorists are reminded that licence plates are issued by Service Ontario to allow the vehicle to be easily identified. Any defect or obstruction of the plate is an offence, and charges can be laid.


Motorists are encouraged to visit Service Ontario and exchange damaged or worn plates for new ones.  In some cases, the old plates may be under warranty, and the exchange will be no cost.


Officers will continue their commitment to road safety with further education and enforcement.
