OPP Conduct Safety Blitz 11 – 15 Dec 2017

 

Yet another safety blitz, this time targeting distracted truck drivers. Not those dangerous, aggressive drivers who run the 401 at 140 and more. No this blitz is targeting distracted truck drivers.

Sure, there are a small percentage of CMV drivers who are less than vigilant, but does it call for a massive blitz?

Truck drivers already constrained by speed limiters, repressive hours of service and electronic logging devices now have OPP ready to interfere with already precious available hours on the pretext all truck drivers are bad therefore need much extra scrutiny.

Be careful out there. Keep your eyes on the road.
