OPP Lay Over 10,000 Charges Including More Than 1,000 Seat Belt Charges Over Easter Weekend


The OPP completed their provincial seat belt campaign over the Easter Long Weekend with over 1,000 charges laid against unbuckled drivers and passengers as part of 10,200 traffic-related charges across the province.

The OPP said they are pleased to report a zero fatality weekend on roads, but officers still laid more than 10,200 traffic-related charges across the province with top offence being speeding at over 6,400 speeding charges laid. During last year’s long weekend seat belt campaign, the OPP laid over 1,500 seat belt charges, more than 6,500 speeding charges and almost 11,000 traffic-related charges overall. The OPP said that the weekend charges serve as an important reminder to drivers and other road users that when the OPP targets one particular behaviour during a traffic safety campaign, officers are highly committed to and well-resourced for enforcing all traffic laws.
