opp p0lice july fullGrey Bruce Ontario Provincial Police would like to thank those motorists who helped out this past long weekend and called in traffic complaints of drivers who were operating their vehicles in a careless and dangerous manner.

Over the long weekend OPP officers charged 59 drivers with speeding on Highway 6 on the Peninsula. 8 more drivers were charged with stunt driving - 50 kilometres per hour (km/h) or more over the posted speed limit. The speeds of the offenders ranged from 143 km/h to 171 km/h in a posted 80 km/h speed limit zone. The driver's licences and vehicles were taken from them for 7 days and they received a court date to answer to the charge.

"Grey Bruce officers will continue to enforce the Highway Traffic Act in efforts of keeping Highway 6 safe. The ongoing disregard for the speed limit by some drivers is unacceptable. We have zero tolerance for these types of drivers and will charge them accordingly, and when applicable, remove them and their vehicles from the road." -- Grey Bruce OPP Detachment Commander - Inspector, Martin Murray

If you witness a careless or dangerous driver on the road dial 911 and report it.
