seatbelt-regORILLIA – Five people who were not wearing their seat belts died on Ontario roads during the final week of the OPP Fall Seatbelt Campaign, much to the dismay of officers who were working hard to reduce these preventable losses. The rash of fatal collisions came at a time when the OPP had their sights set on seatbelt-related deaths reaching a record ten-year low.

The five deaths occurred within one week of the campaign (September 24-October 10, 2014) in four separate collisions (in OPP jurisdiction). Four of the five victims were ejected from the vehicle and in one of the incidents, neither the driver nor the passenger were buckled in, resulting in both people dying. In one of the collisions, the victim was not ejected from the vehicle but died from their injuries – an important reminder that being ejected is not the only reason people die when not wearing a seat belt during a collision.
