Brace for Impact!

This Thanksgiving long weekend, Ottawa Police along with the OPP are taking part in the national road safety campaign known as “Operation Impact”. Police say educating the public about safe driving practices is what’s needed to change driver behaviour. The behaviours that put drivers, passengers and other road users most at risk are impaired driving, seat belt use, speeding and distracted driving. In Ottawa alone, there have been close to 75 thousand collisions, with more than 18 thousand injuries and 132 deaths between 2011 and 2015. (OPS news release)
