The Norfolk OPP will be conducting a traffic safety blitz over the Civic Holiday long weekend targeting drivers who don’t slow down or move over for emergency vehicles and tow trucks parked at the side of the road.
Nearly 1,000 charges have been laid so far in 2018 for drivers who have failed to slow down or move over.
Last year, OPP said more than 2,100 charges were laid.
When you see a stopped tow truck or emergency vehicle with its lights flashing, move over and give them the room they need to do their job.
Police will also be focusing on the Big Four which includes speeders, impaired and distractied drivers and those not buckling up.
Several RIDE checks will also be in place.
The move over law carries a $400 to $2,000 fine, plus three demerit points upon conviction.
