Grenville County Ontario Provincial Police have released the results of their Thanksgiving weekend traffic safety blitz.

Officers with the OPP’s Grenville detachment laid 115 speeding and nine hazardous moving violation charges, as well as one charge of distracted driving, during the long weekend, the OPP said on Tuesday.
There were also four drivers charged under stunt driving legislation for speeding in excess of 50 kilometres per hour over the posted limit; all four had their driver’s licences suspended and vehicles impounded for seven days.
