South Bruce OPP Release Week-long Road Results

Kincardine | by Megan Johnson  

Between May 14-20 South Bruce OPP charged 136 drivers for speeding

The South Bruce OPP have released results from their Canada Road Safety Week campaign, which took place between May 14-20, 2019.

During the week officers charged 136 drivers for speeding, 1 driver for stunt driving, 2 seatbelt infractions, 1 impaired driving charge, 1 drive while prohibited and 1 warn range suspension.

Canada Road Safety Week is an annual enforcement and education-driven initiative led by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police that aims to increase public compliance with safe driving and reduce injuries and save lives on our roads.

In 2018, more than half of the 332 deaths on OPP-patrolled roads were attributed to speed, alcohol/drugs, inattentive driving and lack of seat belt use.
