Numerous Speeders Charged By OPP On Labour Day Weekend

Huron/Perth | by Peter Jackson  

105 motorists were charged with speeding in Huron and Perth during the long weekend

The final figures are in from the OPP's provincewide Labour Day Weekend Campaign, and officers were kept busy on roads, trails and waterways.

Of the 95 charges laid by Huron OPP during the long weekend, 55 drivers were charged with speeding, while two stunters were pulled over and one motorist was charged with impaired driving.

Police say a 51 year-old Cambridge woman suffered a non life-threatening injury in an off-road collision near Blyth Road.

In Perth, 50 speeders made up the bulk of the 78 people charged on OPP-patrolled roads and highways.

Moving violations resulted in another 10 charges in Perth, and one person was charged with stunt driving.

Across Ontario, seven people died in six separate collisions -- two more than during Labour Day weekend in 2018.
