OPP cracking down on drivers who don’t follow Move Over Law

Move over.

That’s what OPP are reminding drivers to do ahead of the Civic Holiday long weekend with lots of traffic expected to be on the roads and highways around the area.

Police say they are concerned by the number of drivers who ignore Ontario’s Move Over Law and place police, other emergency personnel and tow truck drivers at risk on the roadside.

The OPP laid 1,891 charges last year against drivers who failed to slow down and move over, marking one of the highest number of annual OPP charges for this offence since the law was enacted in 2003.

OPP will be conducting targeted enforcement of Ontario’s Move Over Law during the Civic Holiday Long Weekend, as they say they ramp up their efforts to get drivers to comply with the law.
