OPP State Seatbelt Deaths At All Time Low

The OPP is ramping up for the springtime seatbelt campaign for Easter Long Weekend.

This is on the heels of the news that seatbelt deaths are at a 20 year low.

A total of 45 seatbelt fatalities were reported last year which is down from 168 that were reported in 1997.

Both 2015 and 2016 were remarkable since the numbers dipped below 50 for the first time ever.
