2,479 charges laid and 120 unsafe CMVs taken out-of-service during #OPP #OperationSafeTrucking. Passenger vehicle drivers also charged for various violations. Always leave adequate space for CMVs to keep our roads safe. Thank you to majority of drivers operating safely #DriveSafe pic.twitter.com/mMuCYfI45z
