OPP is reminding Muskokans to buckle up
OPP is reminding drivers in cottage country to stay safe and buckle up.
Over the Easter long weekend, the OPP is saying it will be launching a seatbelt blitz in order to crack down on drivers who seem to not bother buckling up. OPP detachment officer, Samantha Bigley says they work hard all year-long to ensure people are driving safely, but from March 30th – April 2nd, seat belt compliance will be the top priority.
OPP is reminding all drivers and passengers to be properly restrained within a vehicle, regardless of how short the trip is.
Bigley says this project is intended to keep people in cottage country safe especially over a holiday weekend.
OPP is also reminding drivers that they are responsible for ensuring all passengers under 16 years of age are using a seatbelt or a proper child safety seat.
