Superior East OPP Distracted Driving Blitz For Labour Day Weekend

Ontario Provincial Police will be hitting the roads watching for inattentive drivers this upcoming long weekend.

Superior East OPP Constable Trevor Tremblay says officers will be watching for all kinds of distracted driving this weekend, including cellphone or entertainment device use in "all manner of motor vehicles".

Constable Tremblay further emphasizes that penalties are now more severe.

Tremblay adds OPP will also be watching for the other "Big Four" - aggressive or impaired driving and seatbelt use - urging drivers against taking "unnecessary risks", especially when you have "precious cargo" in the vehicle.
