Distracted Driving a Factor in Long Weekend Fatal Crashes

(GREY COUNTY, ON) – Driver distraction was a factor in two of the four fatal motor vehicle collisions the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) investigated over the Labour Day Long Weekend, pushing the number of 2014 distraction-related roads deaths up to 39 (in OPP jurisdiction)

The OPP would like to thank the many Ontario residents and visitors who did their part to ensure that they and their families made it through a safe long weekend on roads, waterways and trails.   

As of the end of the Labour Day Weekend, the OPP has laid more than 11,500 Highway Traffic Act 78.1 Prohibit Hand-held Devices charges in Ontario so far this year. 

Locally, the Grey County OPP investigated 12 collisions over the holiday weekend with injuries reported at 2 of the scenes.  Officers laid 69 charges during the weekend.  Fifty drivers were charged with speeding, 1 for racing, 7 for no seatbelt, 10 for distracted driving and 1 impaired driving charge.

In addition, members of the West Region OPP traffic unit laid 40 charges on August 29, 2014 in Grey County.  Thirty two for distracted driving, 5 for speeding and 3 for no seatbelt.

“There are still too many drivers that think its ok to use their cell phone while they drive.  Distracted driving kills.  There is no message so important that it’s worth risking a life for.  The Grey County OPP officers will continue to identify and stop this dangerous act” – Inspector Mike Guilfoyle, Detachment Commander, Grey County OPP.
