The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) geared up for its “Operation Impact” campaign over the Thanksgiving Long Weekend, which ran from October 7 to October 10, 2022. Officers were highly visible on the highways looking to prevent the “Fatal 4” (distracted driving, speeding, impaired driving and lack of occupant restraint).
This year, the Grenville County Detachment of the OPP issued a total of 132 charges and conducted 24 RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) programs.
Keeping everyone safe on the road and water is a priority in Grenville County. The message is simple: never text and drive, always buckle up, drive within the speed limit and do not drive any vehicle – car, bicycle, boat or all-terrain vehicle (ATV) – when impaired by alcohol or drugs.
The Grenville County OPP wish to thank members of the public for their patience during this initiative.
