OPP will be out in full force looking for aggressive drivers this Thanksgiving Weekend.
Police around the region will be out in full force this Thanksgiving weekend as they take part in a nation wide traffic safety initiative.
Operation Impact's objective is to save lives and reduce serious injuries and carnage on our roads through increased public awareness and compliance with traffic laws.
OPP Sergeant Peter Leon says they will continue to focus on impaired driving, aggressive driving, improper or lack of seatbelt use, and distracted driving.
The other part of this national initiative involves OPP officers educating motorists about traffic laws -- such as distracted driving and the Move Over legislation.
Leon says frontline OPP officers and vehicles will be highly-visible throughout the Thanksgiving weekend.
He adds they will have a 'zero tolerance' policy.'
