The Haliburton Highlands O.P.P. says less people are behaving on our roadways. The detachment laid 93 traffic-related charges against motorists in the county over the Easter long weekend. Of the infractions, 61 were speeding and nine were seatbelt violations.

Over the same period last year, the O.P.P. charged 77 drivers. 40 motorists were charged with speeding while six were caught without wearing a seatbelt. The only area that saw a reduction from last year was fewer people were caught this year without insurance. Four drivers allegedly didn’t have their certificate this year compared to nine last year.

Haliburton Highlands O.P.P. Community Safety Officer Dianna Dauphinee says even though last weekend’s blitz is over, the detachment is always keeping an eye out for dangerous driving.According to the O.P.P. the four biggest areas of concerns are speeding, impaired driving, distracted driving, and seatbelt violations.
