Stay safe, have fun over Canada Day long weekend: police
OPP and London police are asking people to be responsible this long weekend so everyone can have fun and stay safe.
London police are reminding anyone who may be out drinking to ensure they have a safe ride home.
Both the OPP and London police will be out in full force patrolling area roads and waterways.
They are looking for aggressive driving, speeding, red light and stop sign violations, distracted driving and other infractions.
On the water, OPP want people to use safety equipment and avoid reckless behaviour.
They are reminding boaters that drinking and boating is just as dangerous as drinking and driving.
If you're hoping to catch a fireworks display, there are several taking place in the London area over the weekend.
