Caledon OPP Easter Long Weekend Campaign Results

Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) stopped and charged numerous unbuckled drivers throughout Caledon during this past Easter Long Weekend Campaign. A total of 187 seat belt charges have been issued.

It only takes a few seconds to buckle up. A properly worn seat belt greatly increases your chances of surviving a motor vehicle collision. As a driver or passenger, it is important to respect the life-saving value of a seat belt and the proven fact that the best position to be in during a crash is securely fastened in your seat. Additionally, a driver or passenger can be charged and face a fine totalling $240 ($200 set fine, $35 victim surcharge, $5 court costs) and two demerit points for seat belt infractions. Demerit points remain on a driving record for two years from the date of the offence.

Vision Zero Peel

The Region of Peel has a “Vision Zero” strategy aimed to eliminate traffic fatalities and injuries. It can be summarized in one sentence: No loss of life is acceptable due to a motor vehicle collision.  More information is available at:
