OPP deploys unmarked cars to spot distracted drivers, starting on long weekend

The Canadian Press

Provincial police say 10 unmarked vehicles will be deployed to spot distracted drivers on Ontario’s roads, starting this Labour Day long weekend.

They are in addition to the regular patrol vehicles the OPP uses to find motorists who talk on cellphones, text or engage in other forms of distraction while driving.

The OPP says the move is aimed at fully enforcing Ontario’s laws against distracted driving.

The force says 35 people have died so far this year in motor vehicle collisions within its jurisdiction in which a driver’s lack of attention was a contributing factor.

In 2013, 86 people died in distraction-related collisions.


Police say this category of road fatality surpassed both impaired-related and speed-related deaths investigated by the OPP last year.

What happens as you age

Your metabolism slows down to a snail’s pace as you age.  This makes burning fat and losing weight next to impossible.The hormones responsible for all of your youth-like qualities such as healthy skin tone, strong lean muscle, robust energy and insatiable sex drive, start declining more and more each year that goes by.  And if you’re not proactive, your youth enhancing hormone levels may drop so low that there is no turning back.Aging makes your bones weaker and more brittle by robbing your body of vital minerals that are essential for strong bones.  This is why so many elderly people suffer from hip fractures that can lead to even more serious medical complications.It’s not just your physical qualities that get negatively affected by aging…your brain suffers as well.  Your memory, your ability to solve problems, and your decision making skills all start to decline and worsen each year.And here’s the real kicker:  After 40, your biological age starts to speed up and age faster than yo…

Report vegetation growth near stop signs and traffic signals

The City of Toronto is asking residents to contact 311 to report locations where summer vegetative growth is obstructing traffic signals and stop signs. The City will dispatch staff to the location to clear the obstruction.

“To protect public safety, we are asking residents to act as our eyes on the street to help us identify and address situations that are potentially unsafe for pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers,” said Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong (Ward 34 Don Valley), Chair of the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee.

Residents can be helpful by providing the exact geographic location of the vegetation that needs to be cleared, such as eastbound on St. Clair Avenue approaching Mount Pleasant Road.

Transportation Services staff and Parks, Forestry and Recreation staff perform proactive maintenance, but in some areas there has been more vegetation growth than usual.

Residents are also reminded to prune trees and shrubs on their property so they don’t obstruct roads and sidewalks, t…

9. Darnley Cascade (43.277067, -80.000978) - Darnley Cascade is located in Crooks Hollow, founded by James Crooks, a Scottish immigrant who came to the area in 1805.  The Hollow had its industrial beginnings in 1801, when Jonathan Morden built a sawmill on Spencer Creek.  James Crooks built the area’s first gristmill, completed in 1813, and named it after his hero, Lord Darnley.
