Superior East OPP Remind Operation Safe Trucking Still Underway

Ontario Provincial Police are continuing to watch commercial vehicles as a week-long safety blitz winds down this weekend.

Superior East OPP Constable Trevor Tremblay explains "Operation Safe Trucking" was intended to make roads safer.

The OPP say they've already seen over 4800 commercial motor vehicle-related collisions this year, 46 of which were fatal - up from nearly 4700 collisions this time last year, 39 of which were fatal - while commercial vehicles have been linked to 30% of this year's fatal crashes on OPP-patrolled roads, despite only accounting for about 11% of all collisions.
