EASTER LONG WEEKEND SEAT BELT CAMPAIGN
(WAWA, ON) - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will be partaking in the Easter Long Weekend Seatbelt Campaign which runs from Friday March 30, 2018 to Monday April 2, 2018. Members of the Superior East Detachments will be out on patrols and will focus on the provincial traffic initiative in making sure that all occupants of vehicles are wearing their seatbelts.
If you wear a seat belt properly, you are more likely to survive a crash. Evidence shows that Ontario's seat belt law works. All motor vehicle drivers and passengers must wear a seat belt that is properly adjusted and securely fastened. Drivers are responsible to make sure that all passengers under the age of 16 are properly wearing seat belts or in proper car seats.
If you are charged and convicted of a seat belt violation, you could receive a fine between $200 and $1,000 along with associated demerit points.
Traffic safety is everyone's responsibility. Let's make sure everyone arrives safely at their intended destinations. Have a safe and happy Easter Long Weekend.
Buckle up and have a safe Easter Weekend!
