Police handed out more than 1,000 tickets on Eastern Ontario roads on Sunday alone, nearly double the haul on Saturday, during a holiday weekend speeding enforcement blitz. Police issued seven three-day suspensions Sunday, issued 24 tickets for stunt driving (exceeding the speed limit by 50 km/h or more) and nabbed 12 impaired drivers.

An additional 53 people were cited for seatbelt violations.
The Cumberland Village cycling connection will see paved shoulders added to or extended on several rural roads to create an easier and safer connection between the village and Trim Road.
