Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Aviation Services lay 25 charges against drivers in Chatham-Kent during a two-day traffic safety reinforcement blitz.
According to the OPP in a news report, this two-day heightened surveillance occurred on August 15th and 16th along Highway 401 in Chatham-Kent’s Elgin and Essex Counties.
During the Aerial OPP’s two-day blitz, there were a total of 25 charges laid against drivers traveling along Highway 401, including:
- 15 drivers who were charged with speeding
- Two of the speeding drivers were also charged for driving with a suspended licence
- Three commercial drivers received charges for following other vehicles too closely
- One driver was charged with stunt driving; that driver’s licence was suspended for 30 days and the vehicle was impounded
In all, the purpose of this blitz was to remind drivers that both highway and aerial police are serious about traffic safety and are regularly patrolling the roads. Additionally, the OPP reinforced the importance of adhering to posted speed limits and maintaining a safe distance between other vehicles when driving on highways.
Obeying Ontario’s traffic laws can help to reduce the number of serious motor vehicle accidents and prevent causing harm to others.
