ORILLIA, ON, July 2, 2014 /CNW/ - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP)
wrapped up its four-day Canada Day weekend traffic safety campaign on
July 2, 2014 with two reported deaths on OPP-patrolled roads.
As part of their traffic safety campaign, the OPP raised awareness about
speeding and other forms of aggressive driving, calling on motorists
and passengers to do their part to help keep the number of
speed-related deaths from rising. Speed is currently the leading
contributing factor in road deaths investigated by the OPP so far this
year (2014) when compared to distracted and impaired driving.
The OPP dealt with high volumes of traffic throughout the weekend and
was pleased to see the majority of motorists driving safely as they
made their way to and from their travel destinations.
