Hundreds of drivers received a fine over the long weekend for breaking one specifical law.
The OPP laid about 400 charges across Ontario against drivers who failed to move over for stopped emergency vehicles.
The Move Over Law states drivers must slow down or move over a lane if emergency vehicles or tow trucks are parked at the side of the road with their lights activated.
This law carries a $400 to $2,000 fine, plus three demerit points upon conviction.
Subsequent offenses carry a $1,000 to $4,000 fine, possible jail time up to six months and possible suspension of your driver's license for up to two years.
