OPP to be highly-visible

The OPP will be highly-visible across Rainy River District this Victoria Day weekend targeting those individuals who choose to speed, drink and drive, fail to buckle up, and drive aggressively.
This weekend brings a close to the National Canada Road Safety Week and launches the beginning of North American Safe Boating Awareness Week, which runs from May 19-25.
During Safe Boating Awareness Week, police will be focusing on the importance of lifejacket and personal flotation device usage, the dangers associated with drinking and boating, the importance of taking a safe boating course, proper vessel maintenance, and the risks of cold-water immersion.
The OPP wants everyone to have a safe and memorable Victoria Day weekend by following the rules of the road and water.
The public is encouraged to call 1-888-310-1122 or cell phone at *OPP if they observe any unsafe driving or boating behaviour.
