I’m THAT Person

The Holiday Season has arrived and with it comes parties and get-togethers of all sorts.  Unfortunately, because of this, December is one of the most dangerous times to be on the road as there is often an increase in impaired driving.  This December, the York Regional Police and the OPP are promoting a fantastic campaign:  I’m THAT Person.  They are asking that you be THAT person who stands up to impaired driving by not letting others drink and drive and by reporting any dangerous driving you see on the roads.  So please help save lives this Holiday Season and BE THAT PERSON.

Help spread the word by sharing with the hashtag #ImThatPerson.


Warning: Long Weekend Ahead!

Warning:  Long Weekend ahead!  While the Victoria Day long weekend is often a kick-off to summer, it is also known as one of the deadliest weekends in Canada.  Impaired driving and boating numbers are highly elevated during long weekends and MADD Canada estimates that impaired driving kills between 1,250 and 1,500 people every year, and injures more than 63,000 in Canada.  The following PSA is a great reminder of the effects drinking and driving can have on your life and on the life of someone else.  So please, while you enjoy this first long weekend of the season, think smart and be safe.  Don’t drink and drive.
