Southern Georgian Bay Man One of Three Casualties on Ontario Roads over the Long Weekend

With its traffic data now finalized, the OPP is reporting three fatal road collisions over the Civic Day Long Weekend and has updated its preliminary Move Over campaign results.

The first collision occurred on Friday evening, August 4, 2017 in Peterborough County, claiming the life of a 20-year old female. The other two collisions occurred on Monday, August 7, one in Lanark County which resulted in the death of a 35 year-old female and the other in Southern Georgian Bay in which a 22 year-old man was killed.

The OPP laid a total of 413 Move Over charges over the weekend against drivers who failed to slow down and/or move over a lane for emergency vehicles and tow trucks that were parked on the roadside with their emergency lights activated.

The OPP would like to thank all drivers who helped keep police, other emergency personnel and tow truck drivers safe over the busy long weekend by complying with this important law.
