ORILLIA — Ontario Provincial Police say they will be taking to highways, trails and waterways in an effort to reduce fatalities and injuries during the Labour Day weekend.
Police say they will be highly visible on the last long weekend of summer, and will target impaired, aggressive and distracted drivers.
They will also be looking for people who are not buckled up or using proper child seats.
Boats will be checked for drinking operators and life-jacket use.
Police say there have been more collisions, but fewer deaths and injuries, on OPP patrolled roads so far this year compared with the same point in 2010.
They have also taken to social media such as Twitter and Facebook to spread the message about safe driving.
