January 27, 2014: Members of the West Region Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) continue to shake their heads in disbelief as officers respond to hundreds of collisions across the region.

"It's just pure luck that more officers haven't been injured or killed based on what I've seen over the past several weeks. Drivers don't slow down, or pull to the left to avoid emergency workers and both are a recipe for disaster!" - OPP Traffic Inspector Ian Chappell.

OPP are busy again today investigating numerous crashes on major highways and secondary roads. The common denominator for all collisions investigated by OPP has been speed.

Some drivers don't understand what "too fast" is. "If you're driving the posted speed limit on a snow covered roadway, you're driving too fast!" - OPP Sgt. Dave Rektor. It's hard to understand why drivers won't slow down. It's hard to comprehend why drivers pass other drivers on a snow covered lane, when two other lanes of the same highway are cleared.

OPP are urging all motorists to slow down when snow or ice are present on roadways. Police and emergency workers everywhere remind all drivers that they are required by law to slow down and pull to the left of emergency vehicle on the side of the road. Following this law would have prevented 8 cruisers from being struck this weekend and sending 2 officers to hospital.
