You’ll want to be on high alert on the roads this long weekend, with OPP on the lookout in Haliburton County.

Constable Dianna Dauphinee says 54 collisions in Haliburton County this year have been a result of distracted drivers.

This weekend, officers will be enforcing the new laws that came into effect this week.

That means you would be facing anywhere from $490 to $1,000 and three demerit points if you’re caught driving distracted.
