OPP Announce 5-Year High For Seat Belt Charges

It seems many of us aren't getting the message when it comes to buckling up.

Provincial Police have released the numbers from their annual seat belt crackdown and they are up.

More than 1,500 charges were laid over the Easter long weekend -- a five year high.

Police also report ten seat belt related deaths on OPP-patrolled highways so far this year.
