The Killaloe OPP is beginning its Fall Seat Belt Campaign tomorrow, cracking down on unsafe driving.
The campaign isn’t just enforcement, it’s education, letting drivers know five seconds can save your life.
The OPP’s Deputy Commissioner Brad Blair says every year police tend to thousands of crash victims and too often find passengers and drivers aren’t buckled up.
Police say there are alarming numbers behind the campaign, showing over 75 per cent of those who died not wearing a seat belt were males, most of which between the ages of 25 and 34.
The OPP will also be checking child car-seats as part of the campaign to make sure parents are buckling up their children safely.
