Ontario Provincial Police launched a commercial vehicle safety blitz on Wednesday. Sgt. Kerry Schmidt of the OPP’s Highway Safety Division said the idea is to spread awareness of the importance of road safety, draw attention to the high number of transport truck crashes in recent months, and to find trucks with safety issues, such as broken lights, that could cause crashes down the road. The blitz comes on the National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims. We spoke with OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt about the blitz.
