Speeding and other forms of aggressive driving are dangerous behaviours and remain a leading cause in fatal motor vehicle collisions (MVC) on OPP-patrolled roads.
In 2016, 55 people died in motor vehicle collisions on OPP-patrolled roads in which speeding was the causal factor. Speeding, following too closely, making unsafe lane changes, distracted driving and failing to yield right-of-way are all forms of aggressive driving that place road users at risk. Aggressive driving is one of the “Big Four” causal factors in road fatalities that the OPP targets as part of its Provincial Traffic Safety Program.
The OPP remains committed to enforcing Ontario laws associated with speeding and aggressive driving in an effort to save lives on our roads.
