OPP Laid 1,524 Seat Belt Charges During Easter Long Weekend

In Police Blotter

(ORILLIA, ON) – Despite warning road users ahead of the long weekend and their high visibility throughout the weekend, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) laid 1,524 seat belt charges during their Easter Long Weekend Seat Belt Campaign (March 30-April 2, 2018).

The charges mark a five-year high in Easter Long Weekend seat belt offences. With ten (10) seat belt-related deaths on OPP-patrolled roads so far this year, the OPP is reminding drivers and passengers that choosing to not buckle up continues to cost road users their lives.
