Provincial Constable Dave Holmes says the Grenville County OPP detachment was kept busy during Canada Road Safety Week.
According to Holmes, during the national safety campaign last week, officers issued 219 traffic charges in our region.
“The majority of the charges were for speeding infractions, which continue to be one of the leading factors in fatal collisions on OPP-patrolled roads,” Holmes says.
Other common charges included driving without insurance, driving with a suspended license, and driving without using a seat belt.
Holmes also says three people were arrested and now face impaired driving charges after incidents in Augusta, Cardinal and Merrickville-Wolford.
“Grenville County OPP values the public’s contribution to road safety as well,” he adds, “and actively responds to complaints of suspected impaired driving.”
If you think you see an impaired driver on the road, Holmes is encouraging you to call into the detachment and report it.
