With the Labour Day weekend approaching, the Ontario Provincial Police are counting on everyone to do their part to ensure a safe long weekend.

With the weekend expected to be among the year's busiest on our roads, OPP officers will be working around the clock, enforcing traffic laws aimed at keeping the motoring public safe. Boaters and off-road vehicle riders are also reminded to make safety their top priority this weekend. The OPP has responded to 23 boater/paddler fatalities and 14 off-road vehicle deaths so far this year.

The OPP are extending their thanks to everyone who contributes to safe roads, waterways and trails this long weekend and throughout the year, helping Ontarians get to and from their destinations safely.
