The SD&G OPP wants to remind citizens that road safety issues are important every day of the year, not just during special initiatives and the OPP focuses on these issues every day throughout the year.

Speeding is an aggressive driving behaviour and continues to be a major contributing factor in motor vehicle collisions, fatalities and injuries on Ontario roads. Please slow down as our primary focus is you arriving at your destination safely.
