Operation Impact Officers Ticketing Turkeys!

While Ontarians enjoy Thanksgiving Holidays, OPP Officers will spend hours protecting motorists from careless  actions in Operation Impact.


 Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are taking a campaign to reduce unnecessary carnage on Ontario highways up a notch, teaming up with police services from across Canada during the upcoming Thanksgiving long weekend.

Operation Impact is a national traffic initiative to save lives and reduce serious injuries and carnage on our roads through increased public awareness and compliancewith traffic safety laws.  This initiative begins Friday, October 5th and runs throughMonday, October 8th.

The OPP will continue to focus on impaired driving; aggressive driving; improper orlack of seatbelt use, and distracted driving. What are known as the "Big Four"causal factors continue to be the primary sources contributing to serious injuries and deaths in motor vehicle collisions.  

The other part of this national initiative involves OPP officers educating motorists abouttraffic lawssuch as distracted driving and the Move Over legislation.

"Frontline OPP officers and vehicles will be highly-visible throughout the Thanksgivingweekend period, maintaining a 'zero tolerance', targeted enforcement approach toward drivers who place others at risk through bad driving behaviours," says OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis. "We will use all available resources, including OPP aircraft,to do our part to ensure Canada's roads and highways remain among the safest in the world.

"The OPP is committed to the Provincial Traffic Safety Program (PTSP) which focuses on educating drivers to permanently adopt safe driving practices," adds OPP Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey, Provincial Commander of Traffic Safety and Operational Support. "There is no doubt the many needless deaths, pain, andheartbreak that result from poor driving habits are preventable. The OPP will continue to lead the way through targeted enforcement and enhancing public education and awareness."
