As the OPP gear-up for its latest road safety blitz, there are some sobering stats showing a major increase in fatal collisions involving transport trucks.

Police say there have already been 25 fatal crashes with transports this year. That's up 25% over last year. Already, police have responded to 3,047 transport truck related crashes. And, police say the majority of the time, it was the truck driver that was at fault. Things like poor driving habits and moving violations account for many of crashes.

The OPP do say, it's a small number of operators responsible, most truck drivers are committed to safety.
