Reckless drivers will be the focus of the five day traffic operation.

For the last two years, there were seven fatalities each Easter long weekend and Acting Assistant Commissioner Tracy Chapman said the goal this year is to reduce that number.

A reminder that next Thursday will be a school day and school zones will be active.
