Police are conducting a weekend long safe driving blitz for the Civic Day long weekend, zoning in on the new move over law.
The new law requires drivers to slow down while approaching emergency vehicles parked on the shoulder of the highway, and alerts drivers to move over a lane, if possible.
On Friday, officials were joined with the family of Sergeant Margaret Eve of the Chatham-Kent Detachment, outlining the rules of the road. Sgt. Eve died after a tractor-trailer crashed into three police cruisers while they were on scene investigating a robbery.
So far this year, OPP have laid 763 charges under the new move over law.
Those caught not complying with the new law can face fines from $400 to $2,000 and three demerit points for a first offence.
