If you happen to’re heading north or south this weekend, and even simply driving by means of the town, count on to see extra police patrolling the roadways.
It’s all part of their lengthy weekend marketing campaign referred to as Operation Affect; a three way partnership between native police and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).
“Everyone on deck goes to be patrolling the roads this weekend,” mentioned OPP Sergeant Carlo Berardi.
“It is one among our busiest weekends so we shall be implementing the massive 4; impaired driving, inattentive driving, aggressive driving and never carrying your seatbelt.”
Operation Affect is in place this lengthy weekend to ensure everybody will get to and from Thanksgiving gatherings safely.
“The goal is to ensure everybody can take pleasure in this Thanksgiving weekend,” Constable Austen Kooy with the North Bay Police Service instructed CTV Information.
“So, you are going to see extra police on the highway. Extra patrols in and round, so do not be shocked. As we shall be on the market ensuring it is protected.”
Consistent with this 12 months’s marketing campaign theme, officers mentioned they’re relying on all drivers to “put their greatest foot ahead by placing the brakes on unhealthy driving behaviours.”
