The Ontario Provincial Police is recognized throughout North America as a leader in traffic safety. The ability to analyze successes in traffic issues provides an opportunity for the organization to rise above the culture of status quo. The OPP will continue to demonstrate true leadership by embracing and incorporating the principles of the Provincial Traffic Safety Program into the core functions of every OPP member saving more lives.
Throughout our rich history in Traffic Safety of almost 100 years, the Ontario Provincial Police has the ability to reach back in time and replicate some of our successful efforts of the past. The re-introduction of the distinctive black and white patrol vehicle is an example of our willingness to re-visit our proud heritage and modernize it to match our present day needs. Leadership and our ability to "do the right thing" is a testament to our "new approach".
The Provincial Traffic Safety Program is a proactive, sustainable approach to traffic safety directed at high-risk behaviours. Occupant restraint, impaired driving and aggressive driving behaviours represent the major causal factors in fatal and serious injury collisions. The focus of the Provincial Traffic Safety Program is to reduce injuries and save lives on Ontario's highways, trails and waterways.
