OPP want everyone to buckle up this Easter

This Easter long weekend, police in Parry Sound want everyone to buckle up when travelling.  Members of the West Parry Sound OPP say there have been nine deaths so far this year where lack of proper restraint was a factor and the ages ranged from 21 to 64.  Staff Sergeant and Detachment Commander Ron Campbell says one thing people who don’t wear their seatbelt think about is the affect they will have on other persons in the vehicle because their body becomes a human projectile in a collision in which they can seriously injure or kill others within the vehicle.  Officers remind drivers that they are responsible for ensuring that passengers under the age of 16 are properly restrained and the penalty for a seatbelt or child restraint offence is a $240 fine plus two demerit points if convicted.  Police hope all drivers, passengers and young children will be properly restrained while travelling on busy roads for a safe and enjoyable long weekend.
