Drivers are hitting the highways early to get a head-start on the Canada Day weekend.
They won't be alone, though.
Ontario Provincial Police will be watching from the air, on the water, in the trails, and on the road.
As the first holiday weekend of summer begins, authorities are telling drivers to remember that speeding, following too closely, making unsafe lane changes, road rage, and failing to yield the right-of-way are all aggressive driving behaviours that injure and kill people of all ages every year.
In 2013, speed was a factor in more than 11,000 crashes, resulting in 33 deaths.
24 people died as a result of distracted driving, and impaired driving killed 12 people.
