OPP Take 19 Trucks Off The Road During Operation Safe Driver
The OPP joined North American road safety partners for Operation Safe Driver last week, laying a total of 6,049 charges on OPP-patrolled roads.
The week-long traffic safety campaign targeted commercial and non-commercial vehicle drivers who failed to share the road safely, with a focus on speeding.
With last year marking the highest number of commercial motor vehicle collisions on OPP-patrolled roads in more than 20 years, officers were well-prepared to deal with the significant number of drivers they observed engaging in poor driving behaviours during the enforcement initiative.
Speeding dominated the offence categories among non-commercial drivers, with 3,687 speeding charges laid. Officers took 19 trucks off the road during the initiative.
