TOWN OF ERIN - On June 11 and June 13, 2019, Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Traffic Management Unit (TMU) will be engaged in an enforcement initiative in the village of Erin. A number of public complaints about speeding, aggressive driving and other unsafe driving practices have led Wellington County OPP to address these issues.

The zero-tolerance, traffic enforcement event is geared to make our roads safer. Through a combination of high and low visibility enforcement operations; aggressiveness, distractedness and speeding are just a few of the dangers on the road that will all be addressed.

"We'll definitely be targeting the 'Big 4' (impaired operation, speeding, seat-belts, and distracted driving) as they significantly endanger drivers on our highways. But, we'll also be looking at other driving offences that need correcting as well." - Wellington County OPP, Traffic Management Unit Manager, Sgt. Darryl Porterfield.

If you know an area were driving safety is an issue, please call OPP at 1888-310-1122 or your local police service.
