OPP say speed-related deaths double from last year

The OPP says highway deaths related to high speed are more than double from last year. Of the 113 people who have been killed on OPP-patrolled roads so far this year, speed was a factor in 33 of those deaths. 24 of those deaths were caused by distracted driving and 12 were impaired driving related deaths. As people make travel plans for the upcoming Canada Day weekend, drivers need to remember that speeding, following too closely, making unsafe lane changes, road rage and failing to yield right-of-way are all aggressive driving behaviours that injure and kill people of all ages every year. Police are calling on all drivers, boaters and off-road vehicle enthusiasts to work together to make the upcoming Canada Day holiday weekend a safe one.
