Although it is just the beginning of the summer travel season, the Bruce Peninsula OPP is alarmed by the number of drivers that are operating their vehicles in a careless and reckless manner by speeding on area highways, namely Highway 6.

“We will continue to be vigilant and charge those who choose to put the safety of themselves and others in jeopardy. When you operate a motor vehicle it is your responsibility to obey the rules of the road and drive safe, your life and the life of others depends on it.” says Interim Detachment Commander – Staff Sergeant Paul Richardson
