OPP Taking to the Skies to Nab School Zone Disobeyers

Police Want to Nab Those Who Won't Stop For School Buses With Their Lights On

Ontario Provincial Police is taking further steps to stop those who won’t put the brakes on for school buses.

Helicopters will be in the sky in both Orillia and Bracebridge focusing on motorists who pass school buses with their lights activated; however, can also enforce speed and a variety of other aggressive driving offences.

The helicopters are equipped with a high tech camera that can view vehicles and their licence plates from a long distance, recording it for court purposes.

The fine for a first offence is up to $2,000 and demerit points while a second offence comes with a fine of up to $4,000, demerit points and the possibility of jail time.
