Nabbing distracted and impaired drivers is the goal as the province-wide Road Safety Week begins with the OPP in the north playing a big part. Staff Sergeant Baldassare Nuccio from the James Bay detachment says a Special Program Coordinator is being assigned this week.

While the assignment is indefinite, the OPP is taking the opportunity to a select an officer for it this week. Nuccio says the coordinator will have a specific mandate to improve safety, enforcement and education for ATVers, boaters and snowmobilers.
