Members of the Caledon and Dufferin Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) participated in a motorcycle safety initiative by utilizing the OPP Aircraft Enforcement Program (AEP), which resulted in 26 driving-related charges.

On May 4, 2024, OPP officers and pilots prioritized road safety for all motorists through aircraft surveillance along Highway 10 in Caledon and Dufferin. The initiative aimed to proactively prepare for the upcoming increase in motorcycles due to improving weather conditions, as well as target aggressive driving, speeding, passing on the shoulder, and failing to stop.

A total of 26 charges were laid including 3 stunt driving charges, 4 improperly displayed plates charges, and numerous speeding charges. Out of these charges, 11 were motorcycles.

The OPP is committed to reducing and preventing injuries on roads, highways, waterways, and trails, while enhancing safety for motorists and all other road users through public education and enforcement.
