Police ask public to stay safe

Friday, May 16, 2014   by: BayToday.ca Staff

Despite the weather forecast for rain and unseasonably cool temperatures, the May long weekend is our window into the summer.

For police, summer means a sharp increase in speeding violations, impaired driving, distracted driving and public intoxication.

"We have had a long cold winter and many people are looking forward to being outdoors on patios, on the lake and on the road to cottages, vacation destinations and to visit loved ones,” said North Bay Police Chief Paul Cook,

“We remind the public that a fun weekend is a safe weekend. Plan ahead. Don’t drink and drive. Wear your seatbelt. Keep to the speed limit. Focus on the road when you’re driving. Stay safe on our waterways.”
