(SEBRINGVILLE, ON) - Between June 28 and July 1, 2019, Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) members were engaged in an enforcement initiative throughout the Province. The zero-tolerance, traffic enforcement event was geared to make our roads safer.

As a result of the four day initiative, Perth County OPP laid numerous driving charges including 82 for speeding, 3 for stunt driving, 2 for seatbelts, 1 for distracted driving, and 14 for other Highway Traffic Acts offences. One impaired driver was charged and 5 drivers were charged for insurance act offences. Perth County OPP also laid 18 charges related to hazardous moving violations.

"The most common causes of deaths on Ontario roads are impaired driving, failure or improper use of seatbelts, distracted driving and aggressive driving. During the weekend blitz, officers focused particular attention to those breaking traffic laws related to the big four." Perth County OPP, Sgt. Scott Bentley.
