Through two-thirds of the year, more than 200 people have died on Ontario's highways. Tragically, the vast majority of them were due to what the Ontario Provincial Police refer to as the "Big Four."
Of the 216 road deaths that have occurred in Ontario in 2014 thus far, more than 77 percent of them were related to either distracted driving, speeding, driving under the influence or non-seatbelt use. The OPP refers to these as the "Big Four" because they are routinely the main reasons why highway fatalities take place.

In light of the season, Ontario is recognizing the second full week of October as Agriculture Week, encouraging the province's residents to celebrate by patronizing local farms.
