Starting this weekend, the OPP will be rolling out their summer traffic campaign, which runs until July 5.
Officials say they will be focusing aggressive driving, along with the “big four” for offences. Those include alcohol/drug-impaired driving, speeding, distracted driving, and lack of seatbelt use.
Police say with warmer weather and longer days means more people will be getting out and enjoying outdoor activities on our highways, waterways, trails, and Provincial Parks.
They add that it is important to remember that impaired driving of an ATV or water vessel carries the same fines as a vehicle on a highway.
The OPP says they will be taking a combined approach of education and enforcement during the campaign for this holiday.
