Airplane used in law enforcement

SD&G – Over the Thanksgiving weekend, members of the HSD (Highway Safety Division) as well as SD&G OPP officers took part in a traffic initiative involving the use of the airplane on Highways 138 and 401. 

HSD Sgt. Paul Sabourin stated that “some drivers were surprised when they were stopped and issued a Provincial Offence Notice for speeding; once they were advised to look skyward they realized that they had been observed by the airplane.” 

The long weekend initiative resulted in the following charges: 3 Radar Warning Devices; 11 Stunt Driving; and 148 Speeding. 

SD&G OPP would like to remind the motoring public to time manage and respect all the rules of the road when travelling on our  highways.
