Thanksgiving One of Deadliest on OPP Patrolled Roads
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.
