OPP to show no mercy with speeders this long weekend

As everyone ventures out to enjoy the long weekend, the OPP will be keeping a close eye.

We spoke with Sgt Kerry Schmidt of the Highway Safety Division.


He says 75 people died in speed-related collisions on OPP-patrolled roads last year, which is a five year high.

Last year as well, OPP laid nearly 213 thousand speeding charges, and more than double of those charges were male drivers.
