Busy Seatbelt Blitz

Grey County | by Jon Meyer  

Grey County OPP check more vehicles this year, hand out more seatbelt charges.

In this year's spring seatbelt campaign Grey County OPP officers checked close to 40 thousand vehicles and 180 car seats.

Officers charged 99 drivers with failing to wear their seat belts and a further 25 passengers with the same offence.

One charge was laid related to an improper child restraint.

Officers in Grey County checked almost double the amount of vehicles this year compared to last year (24,127 vehicles).

A seat belt violation adds two demerit points against your licence and the fine is a hefty 235 dollars.
