OPP say speeding deaths double so far in 2014

CFRA News staff

Slow down! That's the message from the OPP ahead of the Canada Day weekend as new data shows speeding deaths have doubled in 2014 compared to the same period last year.

Of 113 deaths on OPP patrolled roads this year 33 were caused by speeding, 24 by distracted driving and 12 by impaired driving.

Police are reminding drivers they can take steps to keep the weekend incident free.

Officers will be patrolling highways, paths and waterways all weekend long.
