OPP Weekend Seatbelt Campaign A Success

WELLINGTON COUNTY – The April long weekend seatbelt campaign proved to be a success.
Several seat-belt charges were laid along with other highway traffic act offences. The OPP would like to remind drivers that wearing a seat belt properly is a legal requirement for all motor vehicle drivers and passengers in Canada.
Failure to heed to the law can have tragic results, approximately 25% of all people killed in automobile collisions were not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
