THREE CHARGED WITH DRIVING ON CLOSED HIGHWAY

 (GREY BRUCE, ON) – The Grey Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged three motorists for driving on closed highways.

On December 23, 2022, many counties across Southwestern Ontario, including Grey Bruce County, were hit with an extreme weather event. This event saw emergency responders fielding hundreds of calls for service across the area and triaging stranded motorists and other weather-related events throughout the night and into today.

The Grey Bruce OPP during the course of their duties charged three motorists with driving on a closed highway. The Highway Traffic Act states that it is an offence to drive on a closed highway. Each motorist faces a $110 dollar fine with three demerit points upon conviction.

The Grey Bruce OPP would like to remind motorists that highway closures during extreme weather events are for the safety of everyone. Not only is it against the law to drive on a closed highway, but by doing so you put your own life, and the lives of first responders at risk. Please obey road closed signs, and refrain from travelling if you don’t have to during extreme weather events.
