OPP say that the Thanksgiving Weekend was one of the deadliest in recent history with two triple fatality collisions among the four fatal road incidents that claimed a total of eight (8) lives on OPP-patrolled roads.   

Last Friday, the OPP wrapped up its Fall Seat Belt Campaign and laid nearly 2,500 seat belt charges during the ten-day blitz.

During Operation Impact, which targeted aggressive, inattentive and alcohol/drug impaired drivers as well as unbuckled occupants, the OPP laid 6,934 charges. The majority of the charges (5,295) were issued to drivers who were speeding.
