OPP THANKSGIVING LONG WEEKEND Campaign Needs You!

Police Seeking Public Social Media Support!

Starting this morning, police across Ontario have been out in full force,with an education campaign aimed at saving lives and reducing injuries on roads throughout the country. this year social Media is being used to help drive the safe driving message home.

'With Thanksgiving being an early fall long weekend, people see this as another opportunity to use our roads, waterways and trails.'explained Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander, Highway Safety Division,adding: 'We have already seen far too many fatalities and serious injuries over the 2011 long weekends, and we are counting on every person in Ontario to make this long weekend the safest one of all.'

The Ontario Provincial Police working in partnership are joining tens of thousands of Canadian police partners over the Thanksgiving long weekend for Operation Impact, in the annual nation-wide traffic enforcement, and education campaign aimed at saving lives and reducing injuries on roads throughout the country.

From 12:01 a.m. on Friday, October 7 to 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 10, 2011 the OPP and police services across Canada will be relentlessly targeting impaired drivers, those who drive aggressively, or while distracted, as well as those who are not compliant with seat belt and child restraint laws.

During the four-day campaign the OPP will be updating the public about the results of their enforcement efforts on Twitter and Facebook. During that time, Police will be looking to Ontarians to help educate the motoring public about safe driving by joining in the conversation on Facebook.

The start of Operation Impact coincides with the launch of the OPP Fall Seatbelt Campaign. From October 7 to 17, 2011 OPP officers will be highly visible throughout the province as they carry out targeted enforcement of seat belt and child restraint laws.
