Lots of drivers caught speeding during Canada Road Safety Week


The Ontario Provincial Police are out with the numbers from their Canada Road Safety Week campaign.

The Grey Bruce detachment laid over 125 charges over the one-week period.

A large majority of those charges (100) were for speeding followed by stunt driving (10), impaired driving (8), careless driving (3), seatbelt violations (3), and distracted driving (1).

The number of charges laid in Huron County were quite substantial.

267 of the 300 drivers charged were for speeding, which is up from 149 a year ago.

That was followed by seatbelt (16), impaired driving (6), and stunt driving (2).

Huron County OPP officers also attended to 17 collisions, 8 involving animals, and one resulting in injuries.

OPP say while Canada Road Safety Week is over, drivers will continue to see a high level of visibility and enforcement for the remainder of the year.
