Easter will also mark the OPP’s annual long weekend Seat Belt Campaign.

Police will be out on patrol from Friday, April 14th through the 17th. Statistics show that a total of 45 seat-belt related deaths took place in 2016, which is the lowest number of the past 20 years. However, drivers should still expect to see quite a few officers on patrol to help continue preaching safe driving habits.

The OPP reminds all drivers to drive with care and to buckle up.
