OPP officers targeted speeders Saturday afternoon on County Road 42 in Lakeshore.

A total of 8 Provincial Offences Notices were issued for speeding during the blitz.

Now that the weather is getting nicer, the OPP is reminding the public that speeding, following too closely, making unsafe lane changes and failing to yield right-of-way are all forms of aggressive driving that place all road users at risk.

“Everyone has the right to be safe on our roads and speed limits are posted as a means of keeping the roads safe for everyone who uses them,” says OPP detachment commander Glenn Miller. “Our officers will continue to enforce these Highway Traffic Act laws with the hopes of keeping everyone safer in our communities.”

Along with a monetary fine, those caught speeding can expect the following:

3 points for exceeding the speed limit by 16 to 29 km/hour

4 points for exceeding the speed limit by 30 to 49 km/hour

6 points for exceeding the speed limit by 50 km/hour or more
