On May 4, OPP officers and pilots tracked road safety through aircraft surveillance along Highway 10 in Caledon and Dufferin.

The program aimed to prepare for the upcoming increase in motorcycles due to improving weather conditions and target aggressive driving, speeding, passing on the shoulder, and failing to stop.

A total of 26 charges were laid, including three stunt driving charges, four improperly displayed plate charges, and numerous speeding charges.

Out of these charges, 11 were motorcycles.
