Members of the Southern Georgian Bay Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and their community safety partner - The North Simcoe Safe and Sober Awareness Committee would like to remind vehicle and vessel operators this Civic Holiday Weekend to be safe and  never drive impaired.

With increased traffic on our roadways and waterways officers and committee members are asking drivers to think about changing those risky driving habits such as impaired driving that have bad results as they head north to enjoy outdoor activities here in the Heart of Georgian Bay this weekend.

Police remind motorists that an essential part of the enforcement job is to save lives and reduce injuries on our trails, roadways and waterways. Educating the public about safe driving practices is a priority, if you see a possible impaired driver or operator please dial 911 and help prevent a holiday weekend crash.
