The Grey Bruce County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) took part in the Civic Holiday Weekend Campaign from August 4, 2023, to August 7, 2023. The campaign focused on traffic moving over for emergency vehicles and tow trucks, as well as the 'Big Four' which include: distracted driving, alcohol/drug - impaired driving, speeding/aggressive driving, and lack of occupant restraint.

The Grey Bruce OPP laid a total of 101 traffic related charges including:

  • 4 motorists charged with impaired driving
  • 63 speeding charges
  • 3 stunt driving charges
  • 4 charges for failing to wear a seatbelt

During the campaign, the Grey Bruce OPP investigated 11 motor vehicle collisions.

While the OPP and its traffic safety partners remain committed to saving lives on our roads, drivers, passengers, and other road users can significantly contribute to safe roads by avoiding risks and complying with all traffic laws.


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
